This is my current studio space here in Marietta. Isn’t it fab?! It took a few months to get it finished and set up after we moved in, but it was so worth the wait.


This is where the glass stuff happens. I work on a Minor Bench Burner (torch) that is mounted to my table. I updated my vent system from just an overhead hood (see my old studio) to include a system I learned about from Andrea Guarino. I have a fan installed on the outside, with a flex tube connected to the overhead fan. I get twice the ventilation and lots of light. I use an EX-15 Oxygen Concentrator and tanked propane (that sits outside).

My beads are annealed in one of two Chilipepper Kilns. And you can see my glass storage below the kilns.

Here is where the jewelry stuff happens:

And here is where the blogging, Etsy, and Facebook stuff happens. (this is also my Gallery where my beads and jewelry are on display for local customers)
