handmade in the flame–artisan glass beads
emubeads’ unique designs : artisan glass beads
the handmade artisan influence is present with each emubead
the evolution of the humble bead as adornment dates back 70,000 years and was made from ostrich eggs to drilled bone and teeth beads 38,000 years ago. 8000 years ago, beads of semiprecious stones were being traded.
emubeads uses glass techniques with additions of pure silver, sterling silver, glimmers and recycled materials to provide their individual beauty.
i have a dedication to organic forms, giving glass a voice and the distinctive emubeads’ appearance – a result of 17 years working at the flame. contemporary rather than historical, the colours, patinas, surfacing and shaping make each emubead one-of-a-kind.
emubeads are a beautiful addition to any jewellery project.
or simply strung onto your favourite chain.
