I create each of my glass pieces and metalwork by hand in my studio in Orange County, California.

I design custom homes by day, and love to discuss all aspects of design.

About FormFire Glassworks

Amy HolmsPhilosophy:
My architectural background has led to a love of clean, colorful and modern styling. I am currently working to translate this aesthetic into the fluid medium of glass. One of my favorite comments about my work is that my beads are like 'liquid color.' I am thrilled by the combination of pure color and clean design with the transparency that glass affords me.

Glasswork:
I strive to produce the highest quality modern lampwork glass beads and jewelry. I use Effetre and Vetrofond glass from Italy, Reichenbach glass from Germany, and Bullseye, Double Helix, R4 and CIM art glass from the United States. 

Metalwork:
Most of my metalwork is sterling silver except for some of the pre-made spacers I include with your beads at no extra charge. I use fine silver (99.9% pure) on some of my beads as stated in the description. All of my silver cored beads are smithed by hand, providing you with a finished looking bead that is gentle on your stringing material and ready-to-wear.

Background:
I have a Masters in Architecture, design custom homes in Southern California by day, am an active mom of twin 14-year-old girls by afternoon and evening, and try to fit all of the rest of this in between.
