Spring/Summer Island Collection

I am very pleased to announce my new Island Collection. The pieces are inspired by island colours, motifs and wildlife. I've been daydreaming about an escape to a secluded paradise with cool drinks, funky animals and cat naps!

Great Tools!










I was recently skimming through Etsy looking for fun new tools to inspire me, and I came across this neat set created by Frysmith in Alaska. It is a graphite paddle and taper set that allows you to make bottle stoppers and vessels with soft glass. Too freakin' cool! Check out the tool here and be sure to watch his how-to video also!

Fresh Collective
















Pushpins!




I have been concocting some new pieces (esp. earrings!) for my display at Fresh Collective in Toronto. Stop by to check out the latest Hand-Made Glass Fancies!

Process

Bauble Box beads are hand-made by Stephanie Atkinson using the following process:

Each bead is formed in a torch that uses an oxygen concentrator and propane tank. A bead is made using rods of coloured glass melted around a steel mandrel and formed in the flame. After completion beads are put into the kiln to anneal. Following the “cooking” time beads are cleaned using a diamond tip reamer to remove the clay solution that covers the mandrel during the creation process. You will see photos of the torch process on the right side of the blog. Scroll down!

Beads are then made into jewelry. Designs are often sketched beforehand and are then made into the final product. Bauble Box also does wholesale orders of certain styles of beads and jewelry pieces. I also do custom orders. Please inquire.

Step 1

Step 1
It puts the glass in the flame "or it gets the hose again"

Step 2

Step 2
Meltin'

Step 3
