|Hello! My name is Rachelle, and I'm a glassaholic!
My love-affair with this wonderful, magical medium started
as a child, when I collected little glass animals!
About 12 years ago I was lucky enough to meet a lampworker, who taught me
the basic skills to make my own glass swans, flowers, elephants, etc! What fun,
to melt glass rods and be able to create such wonders! And then I discovered the
wonderful world of glass beads!
I am truly addicted to this fascinating art, and am forever seeking to improve
my techniques, to enable me to create the never-ending ideas that this
wonderful combination of glass, flame, color and light arouses in me!
