Terry Nugent - Glass Bead Jewelry

Interning at the Diablo Glass School in Boston, and then operating her own studio at the Joy Street Studios in Somerville, Massachusetts for eight years, Terry found her passion and creativity. With a recent move to the Kalamazoo area, she opened a studio in the Kalamazoo Park Trades Center. When creating glass beads, there are only three elements – heat, gravity and color. The mix of color and the special properties of glass make each piece unique. Terry loves experimenting with color and shape. She notes that the more you experiment with glass the more you learn that it takes on a life of its own in style, shape and mixture. She loves the magic of glass!
