Having fun playing with Bullseye glass - the pinks, purples, and sparkly colors are amazing!  
All of my beads can be found at


I am also working on an estate sale with glass, silverware, and collectibles. 
This set of Viking Bluenique mushrooms is one of the first colors of glass that I fell for! 
Estate sale items and dice bags are available at


I remain slightly addicted to making gnomes.  They, and more friends, are listed every Sunday in my Etsy shop.

Such a fun week!  Rainbows!  Plaid!  More! 

New year, new beads!  I'm working on reloading the shop after a very fun December where many found new homes - thank you!  New listings have been moved back to Sundays, because I just like that better. ;) 

All beads can be found at Etsy: NLC Beads

There is a clearance section with perfectly lovely beads that have overstayed their welcome, to make room for newer beads.  

As ever, thank you for your support and enthuasism!


I'm quite behind on updating this page, but new beads are on posted on Etsy on Wednesdays as they're made.  As ever, thank you for your support and enthusiasm.

Sharing smiles, one bead at a time... 

Still into gnomes and elephants and dinos and all the things.  Thanks for stopping by, beads can be found in my Etsy shop.

St Patrick's Day all the things! 


Hi, all.

As we know, the last couple years have been challenging, to say the least. I've pivoted back to my beloved glass, which I am immensely grateful for; I am working to make it my full time career. It's absolutely delightful to be spinning beads while singing in the studio.

Thank you for your purchases and interaction on social media, it's appreciated.

I've discovered gnomes, and my love for D&D combined with gnomes means... An all-wizard bowling team.  These and more now available in my Etsy shop.

January 2022

Ending the month with.... More Bullseye glass!  Who knew?

I'm back into Bullseye glass - the range between luscious creamy colors and sparkly greens and blue is magical. 

Plenty of options to choose from on my Etsy page.

As ever, thank you for your support.  It's wonderful to be spinning glass again, and them finding new homes is always a delight. 


Heart pendants!  I'm super excited about these as it's been years since I made them. 

At this point, I'm as hesitant as anyone else on the New Year new anything wishes.  My resolution is to achieve the Beads of Courage 1000 Bead Challenge, with my first 105 beads pictured below. 

Every Sunday, new listings will be on Etsy.  It's easier to list there as all sales tax and such is automatically taken care of, and shipping from one site is easier than multiples.    

Wishes for a non-sucky year to everyone.  You'll find me behind my torch more, singing along while spinning glass into beads.

Christmas and Halloween beads on Etsy are 20% through the end of the year!


It's Sunday, so that means new listings on Etsy! Santa hats on all the things, including this darling bat that may be my favorite - don't tell the others. 

November 2021

Thankful for so many things, so I'm running an Etsy sale for 20% off all listings through Monday the 29th!  
They live in an apartment until they're adopted, and the cats won at tic-tac-toe with an assist from a lion. ;) 


I'm changing back to old school, new listings will appear in my Etsy shop on Sundays.  So many fun beads, and fall is here!  


Dino beads, uh, find a way.


120+ listings in Etsy, no waiting!   It's so fun back in the studio, I appreciate everyone's support.  Finding things in my flame that I haven't in years, like penguins and frogs. :) 


Roses?  Don't mind if I do! 


A few more beads on Etsy, and the return of Testosauruses on Facebook!  

My favorite time of year - I get Twix as a business expense for the photo op, and most of the beads don't have mouths so I get to enjoy it.  Win-win! 

First Fridays have resumed on Etsy - this week it will be the Farmyard, so pigs and cows. 


Etsy has a healthy stock of beads, with many Halloween ones featured.  (Ghost dino, you say?  Click away, he's been one of my favorite designs for years.)  This is part of the crew ready to go trick or treating! 


Another nice gang hanging out on Etsy, with more friends added every Wednesday! 



More beads on Etsy - and quite the collection!  Shragons, cats, aliens, elephants, and so much more!   This is one of my faves, staring at the everlasting stunt quarter.

Everyone's migrated to Etsy now.  Aliens and shragons and smiles, oh my!

As ever, thank you for your support. 


 I'm currently working on moving all listings to Etsy, right here.




We have shragons - my mission to make a rainbow of them has been accomplished, plus extras. 

Some revisions were made to the catalog.  I went back to one image, with a second clickable per item as I think it looks cleaner that way.  Categories received a revamp as well to be more specific. 

Thanks for stopping by!  




First Friday - Ahhhh, it's been a while, hasn't it?  This month we're celebrating the Farmyard collection, all 20% off today.   Sheep, cows, pigs, and more, all located in the Catalog to the left.  

Through July 4th, all flying eyeballs sold will benefit pinstriper "Fat Daddy" Mark Hagstrom and his family.  After that, they'll all be sent directly to him for an in-person benefit.

I believe in shragons. 


Fresh off the mandrel, hot fresh beads just for you!

Of course, the group photo looks like a musical number with competing gangs, reflective sunglasses, and backup dancers...

Also of course, it's been a while so I need to relearn camera settings.  Plus side?  I promise the beads look way better in person.  

When you're a cat, you're a cat all the way...

Torching is again a thing, and I remember how - so grateful! 
I'll be listing beads here as they're made.

That's been a long year.  My New Year's Resolution, which I just made today is:

1. Stop procrastinating.
2. Torch more.  

I hope everyone made it through ok. 



Holiday greetings!  Hoping to find my torch more heading into the new year, with some beads still awaiting adopting here. A vintage picture of some of my faves.  Peace to all!

Tickling the ivories this week, with a bit of blue for color as well. 


April 5, 2020

A few new items today, all clustered together for one photo.  Stay safe, everyone.

March 31, 2020

New beads, listed by the end of the month, just under the wire. :) 
Thank you for stopping by to visit; they're all really excited to meet you!

To the torrrrrrch!  Beads are just dancing out of my glass...

March 12, 2020

Local event cancelled due to health issues, as with many other states.  I'll continue doing my introvert beadmaking thing, and will have a variety of lovely flying eyeball beads to list when the catalog goes live before the end of the month.

Change in policy - as I am really, truly bad at special orders, I will no longer be taking them.  I'll take suggestions, but will make and list what I find singing to me in my glass.  Thank you for understanding.


March 4, 2020

I do love a good bead bouquet...

A bead bouquet to hint at what I've been up to.  The flying eyeballs are slated for a local event, the rest will be updated here before the end of the month.  I'll be sharing more on Facebook - be sure to follow me there for more updates.

Starting with a literal clean slate here.  I'm found my torch again and am working on building stock.  The goal is to start listing here again by the end of the month, with a wide variety of options. 

To everyone who checked in, follows me on Facebook, and enjoys my work - thank you.
