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.

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!!!

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!
