I generally make my individual beads into simple pieces of jewelry: pendants and earrings, mostly.
I make the primary bead myself, melting the glass at the torch. The secondary drop-beads and the findings are commercially sourced. The metals used are base metals and are not hypo-allergenic. For most styles, I can substitute sterling silver upon special request (and at additional cost). For earrings, stainless steel ear wires can be substituted upon request. I do the wire-wrap myself.
The "William Morris" bead design (shown to the right here) is my own invention, in honor of the father of the Arts & Crafts movement.
