Painted Glass Beads

I just finished the most fantastic two day workshop with Bronwen Heilman, an incredibly talented artist and teacher. We reverse painted a dozen glass tiles, fired and then applied them at the torch to cylinder cores. Here are a few of my efforts, bead and tile to compare.

And the Bronwen bead I got in the class demo bead drawing. You should see her best beads (out of my price range)!


  1. Hi, I just found your blog. These beads are incredible. I'm particularly drawn to your bead of the buildings.


  2. Thanks, Joanna!
    As I mentioned on the blog, the building bead was made by the workshop instructor, Bronwen Heilman.
