Kari's Beads's Profile


Bio

My passion for glass started with building and designing stained glass windows. Then, back in 2000, I took a class in lampworking as a fun hobby to share with my daughter. Now lampworking is an obsession! I sell locally and thru Etsy. I also teach on occasion. I try to develop fresh designs every year and have found great satisfaction in occasionally getting published or winning a bead competition. The next phase in my journey is to start traveling to teach my lampwork designs.

great product, April 16, 2014 4 stars
Pros
This necklace is inexpensive and has a classic look. I like the extender too - it makes it work for about anyone!

great little kiln, April 29, 2013 5 stars
Pros
This kiln is easy to program - instructions are clear. It's ideal for beads but I've also used it for fusing and enamel work!
Cons
I wish they had a built-in way to hold open the door.

Must have!, February 26, 2011 5 stars
Pros
This book is just as good (or better) as taking a class. Step-by-step instructions for all the basic bead-making skills are clear and easy to read with great photos. This book is truly the best book available about lampworking.
Cons
expensive
