PURPINK - Lampwork Glass Beads (Set)

This funky little set of PURPINK beads was so fun for me to make. Pink, Purple, flowers, squigglies, dots on each side decorated with hair fine glass stringers as always glass on glass melted in the flame on a canvas of my hand made glass beads. How grateful am I to be living my dream? Very grateful.

Hopp on over to Etsy for more views if you like.


34 to 36 mm hole-to-hole
21 to 27 mm wide
8 mm thick

wound on 3/32" mandrel

Having some struggles with my overwhelmed computer. Anyone have a Macintosh 2013 model they'd like to give away to a lampworker in Los Angeles named Suzanne??? ;o)

Love you all - xoxoxoxo Suzanne

This bead is just sooo delightful. The flowers are dancing right off the bead! Lots of motion and bright COLOR.


54 mm hole-to-hole
33 mm wide

"Delightful" has many layers of color and clear for an enchanting 3D experience. 

I can see it simply as a perfect pendant all by itself on a sterling bead and ball chain.  Wow!  Everyone who sees it will want to hold it in their hands and investigate further.

I hope you love it. Please check my Etsy store for views of the back side if you like.

This is a great little set from yesterday fresh out of the kiln today. These purpley blue fade to orchid beads with happy white daisies with silver glass centers, polka dots and even three black fins on one for added interest. They are rainy day beads with high hopes for sunshine tomorrow.

The set is decorated on both sides as always with hair fine stringer work painted with glass on glass while in the flame.

This set will make a fantastic bracelet or necklace.


5 focal beads:

smallest bead is 33 mm hole-to-hole x 23 mm wide
largest bead is 35 mm hole-to-hole x 28 mm wide

plus 6 spacers

The beads are about 7mm thick and made on a 3/32 mandrel.

Hope you enjoy this set which will by in my Etsy Shop a little bit later this evening with a few more pics.

Love you Lots -- Hugs, Suzanne

SUZANNE - Pocket Full of Posies - (set glass beads)

Hi everyone. No I didn't drop off the face of the earth even though it may seem so. I took the enamel class from JC Herrell and was so in love with enamels afterward I wanted to incorporate them into my designs. Practice, practice, practice until I could finally come up with something I am proud of. The colors are SO bright. Much brighter than the COE 104 Effetre etc. and handle differently as well. Although the base bead is made of Effetre white the enamel powder is shaken with a sifter onto the bead and put back into the flame to melt. The effects are faded colors on colors, which I like. Enamels are powdered glass and there are so many ways to work with them. Up until now I've only worked with rods of glass. I hope you like these as much as I enjoyed making them. They will be in my Etsy Shop shortly.

It's good to be back online sharing my beads. My beads are selling well and I'm developing many friends in the buying, selling and creative world. I'm blessed.
