Combining glass, gold, and silver, Beth creates contemporary, elegant jewelry highlighted by the rainbow of colors and textures inherent in her glass rods. Having been a studio metalsmith for many years prior to focusing on glass, Beth's designs balance all the elements in her materials, resulting in pieces that the owner can wear with comfort and pleasure. Pure gold granules and silver threads accent the surface of Beth's lampworked beads, reflecting her signature style that has been recognized in publications and juried exhibitions across the country.
Exploring the qualities of glass and color are what drive my work; using light and transparency in surprising ways along with layering color on color helps me to create unusual contemporary beads and jewelry. Inspiration comes from my gardens, the ever-changing light on the ocean, the seascapes that surround me…anywhere colors collide in nature. Pure silver and gold accents add a final tactile quality, allowing my pieces to be as interesting to touch and view as they are to wear.
