Featuring Her Handmade Lampwork Beads
& Handcrafted Fine Jewelry
The Toronto, Ontario-based artist will unveil her newest collection featuring handmade lampwork beads and handcrafted necklaces, bracelets and earrings. A self-taught bead maker, Amber uses a range of silver, pearl, and crystal bead chains, offsetting the stunning glass creations she makes in a variety of patterns, colors, and styles.
Perfecting a variety of designs since the 1990's, Amber often uses silver foil suspended within her glass pendants; she "draws" delicate filigree designs with molten glass and handcrafts individual beads before a stationary torch. Her designs are limitless, created on silver and crystal beaded chains, hand hammered silver links, or pearls – using the finest Murano glass as her raw material. Colors and patterns range from neutral blacks and whites to all colors under the rainbow; from whimsical polka-dots to seductive tiger and zebra stripes, as well as sculptural three-dimensional designs, and dichroic pieces.
Join us for refreshments and meet Amber as she unveils this exciting collection!
