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.

Headpins Galore……….

I have been making lampwork glass bead Headpins……. they are like beads but they are made right on the copper wire. So many fun things you can do with them – dangles, charms, earrings…. a different technique than making beads on a mandrel for sure!

Big Changes

My prize Sea Holly is stunning this year!Yes the day finally came when my husband and I were able to retire this spring! Lots of hard work getting there but suddenly it was upon us. Do what does one do in retirement? Besides making MORE BEADS I finally got the gardens looking like I wanted them! Well…. to a point of course. One never has things quite the way it should be but I have made short work of weeds and now can enjoy the view. Of course my husband has been ever helpful but I sure enjoy having time to do it myself at a leisurely pace. We are enjoying having ‘vacation’ every day so far. And of course I will have more time in the studio to create.
