Hello and welcome! I’m a lampworker that has recently settled in New England after traveling the country 20+ years as the spouse of an active duty servicemember.
My family has a long line of ‘make do and mend’-ers, so it’s no surprise lampworking caught my eye in 2005 and learned a new way to use my hands. I now do shows and teach all over the US.
My work has been in multiple publications such as The Flow, Glassline magazine, BeadworkRustic Wrappings and Bead Review 3.

In 2018, I was commissioned to make the Commemorative Bead for the Bead & Button show.

You can also see me on the PBS show: Beads, Baubles and Jewels hosted by Katie Hacker. It’s amazing to realize I have a recording on the same network as Bob Ross and Mr. Rogers!

This is also the place I chronicle my love of sewing a handmade wardrobe. Expressing myself through a handmade wardrobe is the height of creativity for me! This has also made me appreciate responsible and well crafted products from other makers, particularly woman-owned businesses.

  1. Hi, Kim- I’ll be sending out the class supply list by mid-June, so everyone will have plenty of time to gather what’s needed. Looking forward to seeing you in Houston!
