Handmade Glass Bead Jewelry

 

I am Lyn Foley, a glass artist. I create jewelry to make you a star!

When you wear my handmade glass bead jewelry I want you to light up with happiness and joy.

Years ago, after earning a B A degree in art education. I fitted between teaching art and creating watercolors, drawing, jewelry and fiber.

I met Jim Foley in 1974 and my life changed.

While selling my crocheted clothing on the streets of San Francisco, I met Jim Foley, a goldsmith selling his beautiful lost wax cast jewelry. We fell in love and celebrated our relationship with a romantic trip to Mexico. There, on a secluded beach wth only pelicans and a lone sailboat on the horizon, we bowed to sail around the world.

We returned to California to earn money to finance our dream. I lput fiber aside and together we opened a fine jewelry store, then a card store, then another. Jim evolved into a master goldsmith. I mastered the entrepreneurial mix. Time passed. Our marriage, our business, our jewelry skills and our savings account prospered, but our dream lay tucked away on shelf.

Our dream gathered dust until health problems woke us up.

Lampworking involves melting glass in a torch flame to make beads. The flame scared me, and I spent my first day making beads with shaking hands. Suddenly, the fear disappeared. I fell in love with melting glass. I bought the needed supplies and set up a studio. If Parkinson’s allows, Jim works too, designing and making findings and settings in sterling silver. *(I go into that show!)

Unforgettable Jewelry for Remarkable Women

My art sills and my love of drawing, of texture and of color merged when I found glass. Each bead I create with molten glass is a miniature painting each a link in the jewelry I create, each a moment of love captured in time. Lampworking offers endless possibilities, myriad moments of discovery. Your participation allows me to continue creating unforgettable jewelry for remarkable women. I thank you.

“The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.” Mikhail Baryshnikov

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
