More new beads coming up in the shop later today so keep checking back if you want to take a peek!
Now to find my snow shovel......... :)

Well after a busy season of travelling I'm happy to be back in the studio once again. I've listed some lovely new focal beads in the shop with new beads coming up daily! Now is the time to get your orders in for the holiday season - let me know what you need and I'll be sure to get it to you in time for Christmas!
Have a great week!

Ok so I didn't go too far....just took a bit of a break from the studio this summer and fall! Things have been insanely hectic the past few years - all good stuff - just no downtime! So, in order to refuel my creative "think tank" I decided to give myself a rest. Now I'm refreshed, recharged and happily back in the studio once again! Here are two new beads in my favourite styles that I've listed in my Etsy shop for you, ( www.kerribeads.etsy.com ) a feisty raven holding a bright, red berry and a serene swan gliding under a full moon.
More beads to come in the days ahead so keep watchin'!

Good Monday Morning everyone!
Thanks to some special custom requests I've had lately, I've been working on some new beads and have a few to share today! One is a cheeky raven with a bright red berry and the other is a cheerful red winged blackbird! I'm working on more beads throughout the week so I hope you'll check back to see what's new!
Have a great week!
p.s. I will be at the Whole Bead Show in Vancouver this weekend! Come on by and say hello!

Good Morning! I just wanted to share another new bead with you! This ruby-throated hummingbird is happily contemplating which flower he will visit next....I just love the colors in this little guy!
I hope the sun is shining on you today and that you take a moment to savor the beauty all around you...

Something new for today! I've just listed this ornate Victorian Tapestry Vessel in my shop. I've been busy in the studio getting back into designing my petite aroma vessels....so fun! Mother's Day is not far away and I think these would make a lovely gift....perhaps with her favorite perfume!
More to come so stay tuned!!

Well a Happy April Fools to all of you bead enthusiasts out there! Hopefully you've all avoided having someone play a prank on you or at least got some good ones in yourself! ;)
I've been busy in the studio once again and have some new goodies in the shop this week! Horses have been on my mind and I've been working on my shading techniques and horses are the perfect subject to "paint" in glass. I have a saucy palomino, a majestic buckskin and two ghostly greys in the herd today. Also some new ravens and my made to order beads sets are back!
Stay tuned for more goodies throughout the week!

Oh my, where has the beginning of the year gone? Things have been hectic, but good! I've been traveling a fair bit lately teaching at some great studios such as Scarab Glassworks in California, Bedrock Supply in Edmonton and locally here at Andrighetti Glassworks in Vancouver! My next trip is to Calgary to teach at the Tiffany House Gallery in May.
Today I discovered a fun surprise while having my coffee and looking on the Bead Trends website....one of my favorite jewelry pieces has made the cover of the April issue! The best part of all, this special issue features my fabulous friend, Stephanie Dieleman as the Designer Highlight! You'll definitely want to check out this issue to see her gorgeous designs and beautiful beads!!
Stephanie and I have just finished the first Fraser Valley Bead Show (it was great!!) and are gearing up for our next local show....Bead Oasis in downtown Vancouver, BC, on March 26-28 at the Empire Landmark Hotel on Robson Street. http://www.oasisshows.com/Vancouver/2010/index.php
This is the first time that Bead Oasis has come to BC so we are excited to be a part of this show and hope you will be able to drop in to say hello! We've both been working on some fun new bead designs (think hearts and loads of yummy colors!!) and some exciting new jewelry pieces too.
We look forward to seeing you there!!

Well I hope you are all having a great start to the year! I've been spending time in the studio creating a few new pieces for the shop if you want to drop in to take a peek! Some of my new favorites are these two swans.....I have softly etched them so they feel like vintage porcelain cameos...so romantic!
I will be traveling a lot this year with teaching engagements, bead shows and a few holidays thrown in for good measure. In January, I'll be away from the 5th - 19th so all bead orders made on Jan 4th or later will be mailed out when I return. So now is the time to contact me if you need something special in time for Valentine's Day!
Cheers and Happy New Year!!
