Exploring and experimenting with various mediums, Cathy draws from her previous artistic adventures to create fresh, exciting pieces that stimulate and evoke emotions in those who view them.

No two pieces are the same and she uses a surprising array of materials in her creations. The soft glow of fresh water pearls, twinkling Swarovsky crystals, czech seed beads and her own hand made unique metal worked charms & colourful torchwork glass beads are some of the ingredients in her wearable art.


The Making of Glass Torched Beads

Murano glass rods are heated with a torch to approximately 1700 degrees F until molten. This melted glass is then carefully wrapped around a steel rod to form a bead. Various colours of glass, pure silver wire and foil, copper and other metals can be added under the torch to create a myriad of patterns and textures on the finished bead. The newly formed bead is then "annealed" in a kiln to strengthen the glass. Each bead is an individual work of art!
