Beastie Beads / Countryside Lampwork Glass

Where glass, fire, animals, & imagination collide!



Become a fan of Beastie Beads Lampwork!










I strive to make collectable art beads and glass sculptures.  

Each bead/piece has it's own two creations are ever exactly the same.

My beads and glass pieces are not mass produced.

All of my animal beads are freehand molds, painting, or machines are used in the aid of creating them.

Every bead is created one by one in the flame of my torch.   

I use a variety of soft glass to make my beads...Moretti/Effetre, Vetrofond, CiM, Lauscha, Tag, Glass Works, and ASK. Pretty much anything I can get my hands on.

All beads and glass pieces enter a preheated digital controlled kiln the moment they leave the flame. They are properly annealed and cleaned.

Every bead is signed by me with my Beastie Bead initials "BB".

A little piece of my own heart goes into each creation as it comes to life in the flame of my torch.

It is my hopes that my creations will bring you many smiles and that you will enjoy my them as much as I've enjoyed creating them.



All my glass creations are made right here in the USA, with my own hands, bead by bead in my home studio. I make them...I sell them. I strive to perfect each one of my designs and bring you nothing but quality. Each and every creation is properly annealed, cleaned, inspected, and guaranteed against stress cracks/fractures.

Customer satisfaction is my top priority!
