Krissy discovered her passion for Lampwork when her mother-in-law, Marion, introduced her to the medium in the Fall of 2003. Creating handmade gifts for family and friends has always given her great joy. She explored many types of mediums such as sewing, cross-stitch, painting, and jewelry making. However, when Krissy discovered Lampwork Beadmaking, she fell in love with the process, which she found exciting and challenging.
Born in Los Angeles, California, however, in 2010, she relocated with her family to Central New York, creating little Lampwork pieces of art from her home studio in Clinton, New York.
She uses many types of Lampwork Glass, such as Effetre, Moretti, Lauscha, Vetrafond, and Czech. Every Lampwork Glass Bead she creates is immediately placed into a digitally controlled kiln for annealing, soaking, and gradual cooling overnight. This cooling process ensures that Krissy's Beads are beautiful and durable in hopes of lasting a lifetime.
