I have a new Studio-mate! Teague Cohen is from Portland and a graduate of Colorado College. She is a bead maker and sells her beads on ebay and etsy. I have been fascinated watching her work. She uses a process called lamp-work. Each bead is built on a steel rod by melting glass with a torch. She carefully works each bead with class rods, powdered glass and metals. Then the beads are placed in a kiln to cure. Teague has an online store where she sells bead sets and focals for jewelry makers and collectors.
