Every bead tells a story...
Welcome to Beth Grant Glass! I'm a glass bead artist based in Orangeville, in the Headwaters area of Ontario. I use the lampwork bead that I make to create one-of-kind pieces of sterling silver jewellery as well as other gift items such as pate and cheese knives, magnifying glasses, bookmarks and lots of other goodies. You will find lots of jewellery photos on my website and I'm working hard to add some photos of the gift items.
When I'm working, you can watch me creating my beads. This is a fascinating process and well-worth the walk down the long hallway to the room at the back of Dragonfly Arts on Broadway, in downtown Orangeville, where my studio is located. If you cant make it in to watch you can learn how glass beads are made by watching this short video created by Headwaters Tourism!
You will also find a well-organized showroom with the studio where you will find the best selection of my work. I share the studio with Joan Hope, fellow glass artist and owner of the shop (you saw her in the video if you watched it!). Orangeville is a wonderful destination with interesting shops and a vast array of totally amazing restaurants so if you are in the area drop in! Even if I am not there you can take your time, have a good look around and make a purchase if something inspires you to do so. I try to be in the studio on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 - 3. Please note that Dragonfly is closed Sundays and Mondays for the winter.
As you look around my website you will see that for me 'It's all about the colour!'. My beads are inspired by my adventures in Canada and beyond and I have set up my website to demonstrate this relationship (be sure to watch the banner at the top of this page!). If you click on the Bead Collections button on the left you will enter my bead world! You can learn more about me by visiting the About the Artist page. To watch a video of me in action please visit the Studio & Showroom. New Events will be added as they are confirmed. If you like what you see and can't get out to my studio, my online shop is regularly updated with new work. And be sure to sign up for an occasional newsletter (see below) to receive a discount code to use online! Most of all have fun looking around!!!!
