Heartsong Beads Update Nov 2018

Hello everyone ,Susan here, I still have my Studio/ Shop  in Seal Rock, making lots lovely glass beads and memorial beads these days , below are a  couple of new  beauties. I feel very blessed when people contact me to create a work of wearable art for them with their ashes . It touches my heart deeply reading the letters they send , telling their stories of love and lives together.
