The romance with glass began more than a decade ago and was fueled by a visit to a small boutique that had a display set up with several small flame worked Christmas tree ornaments. When I mentioned to the owner how beautiful something so simple was, the woman replied that the technique was called 'lampwork' and her husband crafted them with glass rods and a torch. This statement fascinated and intrigued me, and so months later when I happened across a listing on EBay for a lampwork kit it seemed like kismet.
That was the start of a journey down a very long rabbit hole.
In time, I began a business supplying jewelry designers with my handmade glass beads. The business was named Sweetwater, in memory of my childhood.
As a young girl, our family of 8 moved from Vancouver Island to several hundred acres of pristine land on a remote northern corner of British Columbia, near the Halfway River. There was an underground stream of crystal clear water that bubbled up out of the earth year round and because of that, the ranch became know as the 'Sweetwater'.
Although I now sell my jewelry designs under my own name, familial elements are core and you will always find the presence of 'Sweetwater' in some of my work. Family roots run deep and influence much of what is created in my studio. Love for the earth influences all of my work.
