Donna demonstrating for a bead class

I have been making lampworked beads for almost two decades and have studied with Loren Stump, Emilio Santini, Lisa St. Martin, Sage and Tom Holland, Lewis Wilson, Julie Clinton and Will Stokes, James Minton, Liz Mears, Kate Fowle and Lucio Bubacco.  I offer lessons in my studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico and have studio time available for lampworkers who do not have their own facilities.

Donna's Designs lampworked beads are sold at several local and international bead shops including the Bead Museum in Glendale, AZ and Beadazzled in Washington, D.C.  Examples of my finished jewelry are available at the Corning Glass Center, Corning, NY; Kittrell-Riffkind Glass Gallery, Dallas, TX; Artisans Gallery, McLean, VA; Arts Afire Glass Gallery, Alexandria, VA and Artisans United, Annandale, VA.  I also bring back lampworked beads from the Czech Republic and sterling silver beads from Turkey, both for use in my own work and for retail sale.

Leaf Necklace My designs are constantly changing.  Check out the exciting new designs and imported items and, as always, my signature glass leaves are available by special order.
