Amy’s unique sculptural award-winning flameworked beads and jewelry are lauded in several publications, museums and galleries across the United States and Europe. Amy continues to innovate, collaborate, teach and learn, wherever glass takes her.
Amy also thrives on working collaboratively with other artists. She and Goldsmith Cynthia Archer have been designing & making limited edition studio jewelry & one of a kind works together for 6 years.
Jill launched herself into the world of glass flameworking seven years ago at an intensive workshop at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, NY. Since then she has studied with numerous recognized beadmakers.
