Glass bead making practice and life experience come together in my 2021 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.
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.
