Get to Know

I am proud to be a Self Representing Artist (SRA #A13) as well as a Self Representing Artist in Jewelry Design (SRAJD #322). If you are new to buying lampwork beads, SRA = Self Representing Artist. You will find it in listings of beads handcrafted by glass artists who represent their OWN work. That way you know you are buying a unique handcrafted lampwork bead that is not mass produced in some low paying factory and exported in mass quantities to other countries.My beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and longevity.

I also have a new shop on etsy for upcycled clothes and accessories. Please check it out! http://www.LAGypsyDesigns.etsy.com
