I am a self representing artist, meaning I create all of the beads and jewelry I sell as well as do all the selling, shipping, listing and photographing involved in selling them myself. My beads are made in the flame of a torch by me, Mandy Ramsdell, in my studio in Maine. Each bead is unique and is a wearable work of art. My beads are properly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability. My beads are made from glass rods that are mostly Italian murano glass. I sometimes use other specialty glass produced here in the US and Germany. I take pride in going the extra mile to make my beads extremely high quality as well as unique. The sterling silver cores are coated with a museum quality wax before they are put into the beads to prevent tarnish.
