Necklaces • Designer Glass

The glass beads in many of these necklaces are handmade by two of California's most renowned bead makers, David Christensen and Mingo and Asho. Because these beads are hand blown, I can never guarantee I'll get the same bead again when I order, which makes these bracelets one of a kind. The colors and designs may be similar, but each bead and each bracelet is individual and unique.

Mingo and Asho's beads are just incredible. They have been creating their beautiful beads since 1990 and are really masters of their craft. Asho's sense of blending colors, and the grace with which Mingo uses the blowpipe, combine to create some of the finest beads available. Take a moment to zoom in and see the fine detail of their work. Each bead is a work of art.

There are also hand blown glass beads from Unicorn, and incredible hand blown beads from Olive Glass and Newberry, as well as Czech vintage lamp work glass beads.

While the pictures below will give you a sense of the overall design of each necklace, they just can't capture the gorgeous colors and beauty of these wonderful beads.
