Have you made something with my beads??

If you're a crafter or artist and have created something unique with my beads or glass tiles, and would like to be featured in my website as a guest artist, please email me at cec235@hotmail.com.

Magical Boro - Back at the Torch!

Welcome to Glass & Light. If we haven't met before, you can visit my "other blog" (see link on the right) for a more personal view into my soul.

To celebrate the New Year, I picked up some of my precious boro and rushed to the torch to create a series of Galaxy and Nebulae beads - all swirls of delicious colors.

Some of them have very large holes - for what's called Pandora or Troll chains, or even to string onto your dreadlocks and braids.  (Yes, I occasionally adorn myself with beads :-).  All can be found in my Etsy store, Stringythingy.

What else is new for 2010?  I've upgraded my tutorial, From Bottle to Bead, for easier reading and printing, plus an interactive gallery that you can flip through.  And I've started a newsletter.  If you've ever purchased something from me you'll find yourself on it eventually (with the option to opt out) but if you are not a client and would like to recieve my Glass & Light Newsletter, feel free to sign up with the simple form at the lower right hand of this page - my newsletters will include photos, new designs and opportunities to see and purchase my work at a discount before it goes generally online.  I'm aiming to send out a newsletter once ever two or three months, so you needn't fear that I'll be drowning you in emails.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2010!

Did you know I recycle?

I reuse shipping and packing materials whenever possible. If relevant, your package will include a note to let you know how I conserved resources when packing up your purchase.
