Welcome to LazyCatBeads!!

Glass is my passion and creating beautiful beads for designers as well as ‘ready to purchase’ jewelry is what I like to do best! When I am at the torch I lose all track of time……only the glass and the flame are in my mind. Each piece you see is a small work of art…….

All of my work is available for purchase through ETSY, a showcase for many wonderful artists and the place to buy ‘all things handmade’. You can use either PayPal or a credit card to purchase. To see past work that I have done go to my GALLERY page.  I hope you enjoy my photos and updates as I continue on my journey with glass. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me.

Winter Doldrums

I enjoy winter and all it’s beauty. But…… this is the time of year that tends to be a little dreary some days. And cold. And ‘I don’t want to get out of bed-ish’ if you know what I mean. I set myself another goal – try to find something lovely about every day. And while looking at the snow on the deck and mourning that I can’ be out there enjoy a nice glass of wine and sunshine I do like the fact that the chair is waiting for me!  And pristine snow is just the best 🙂  So here’s to the cozy winter days with books on the couch and a roaring fire. Soon enough spring will burst forth.  I will be ready!

2018 here I come!!!

Trying to keep my goals and perspective in line this year…………..Enjoy what I have and do not yearn for what I don’t have…. and I have pretty much all I need in life.  So many challenges, joys and lessons learned in 2017.

I have been putting together some pendants using my hollow lampwork beads. The silver really seems to set them off!

Beautiful day to start a new adventure…..

Our son and his wife are off to a new state – sunny California! We couldn’t be more excited for them. The job of his dreams and a wonderful life partner by his side.  What an adventure for them both. And off they go!!!
