Glass bead making practice and life experience collide in my latest colour collection, Resilience. The beads for this collection are hand blown and decorated with the random application of frit (small pieces of glass). The frit represents all those events that life throws at us that we absorb, reshape and continue on demonstrating our resilience.
I will be donating 10% of the sale of each piece from the Resilience Collection to the Hunter Women's Centre, which has been here for the women of the Hunter for over 40 years.
The Resilience Collection marks my first foray into lapel pins. I have handmade the lapel pin from sterling silver and finished it with one of the handblown Resilience glass beads. The Resilience Luscious Lapel Pin is guaranteed to be a conversation starter.
