Welcome to the Design Den

Home to my handmade glass beads & jewellery

The Design Den is the online home of my custom-designed and handmade jewellery, glasswork, and beads.

Everything you’ll find here is inspired by the limitless potential of creating beauty from scratch. Aside from the glass beads, the majority of the metal bead caps, earwires, necklace bails, and bracelet components used in my jewellery pieces are handmade by me in the Design Den studio.  I am proud to say that the majority of my jewellery is 100% Canadian and handmade.

Wearing colourful handmade jewellery brings a WOW factor to every outfit. Find yours at The Design Den.

This online store has a good selection of my current products but if you’re looking for something specific or you have questions about sizing or colour, please contact me.

Bling! Wearable Glass Art Show & Sale

Bling! Wearable Glass Art Show & Sale is just around the corner.  This show is extremely special to me because it is hosted by the glass group I belong to.  We are known as the Pacific Pyros and we currently have around 40 members. 

This will be our 5th year putting this show on and it's a must attend.  This year we have 20 tables of glass beadmakers, each displaying their various style of beadmaking.  While the name Wearable Glass Art implies it's only jewelry, it's not.  The common theme is Glass and each glass artist has a different offering. 

This particular show is good for those shopping for unique handmade gifts, original one of kind jewelry, fabulous handmade beads and marbles ready for the collector or designer. 

There will be beadmaking demonstrations and door prizes.  Admission is free!  Bring a friend!  Tell a friend!  Come early!
