I began making flameworked glass beads over 25 years

ago. I think of each bead as a gem stone, using colors like aquamarine, peridot, topaz, amber and amethyst. I like to combine my beads with natural stones that I find on the Adriatic beaches near my home in Italy, or interesting charms and coins that I find in the markets. I am fond of using snake bones for their magical and healing properties, an ideal that is still alive in the Abruzzo region. All my jewelry is one-of-a-kind and customizable, and commissions are also accepted. If you dream of a particular type of necklace, bracelet, prayer beads, or anything else that your imagination conjures up, we'll work together to make it a reality.
