Thank you for visiting my website. As you see, my passion is creating handmade lampwork glass beads. I have been working as a lampwork artist since 2003.

I invite you to view what I have for sale in the Cracker Cottage Studio Store. I love custom orders. You can see more of my past and current work at

Located in the Ancient City of St. Augustine, my third-floor studio overlooks the beautiful Intra Coastal Waterway. My handmade lampwork is inspired by views of North Florida’s marshlands teaming with birds by day, and blessed at the end of each day with unforgettable sunsets. Here in the beautiful city of my birth, I practice the ancient art of lampwork, creating glass beads, one by one, and handmade one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories featuring my beads.

Should you have any questions or comments regarding the art of lampwork or about my lampwork beads, I invite you to send me a note! I love hearing from fellow beadmakers and bead lovers!
