drawer pulls

When I saw Sandy and Fiona's new kitchen I gasped as I ran my hands over the doors and then said "Oooooh! I want to make glass pulls for your cabinets!" What a gorgeous kitchen! The cabinets are wood, the colour of bleached driftwood, and the countertop is granite, the colour of the red Island clay.

I call this colour mermaid and it's perfect for their kitchen that looks out over the dunes and then the ocean.

Heather Trimlett

I had the great pleasure of studying with Heather Trimlett at the Brazee Street Studios last October. I just knew it was going to be a blast when Heather stood up and started waving a purple marker!

Some of my delightful classmates: Dee, Leanne and Janet.

Heather explained and demonstrated...

and we hung on her every word.

I even got to run my fingers through a bowl of Trimlett Candy.

Heather teaches technique, first. Because I am a full-time bead maker and I work on my own, I don't have much opportunity to learn from others. Spending the weekend with Heather and this wonderful group of flameworkers was an extremely encouraging, fulfilling and uplifting experience, and my technique improved tremendously!
