Lisa practiced architecture for many years before becoming a glass bead artisan. This influence can be seen in the bold colors and platonic forms of her work, redefining the traditional round glass bead. She crafts all of her beads by hand in her studio. The beads are the foundation of her unique jewelry designs that draw inspiration from a broad variety of influences from the retro patterns of the 1950’s to the organic forms of branches and stones. She has won many awards at local art shows and been featured in several newspaper articles highlighting her work. She lives in Cincinnati Ohio with her husband and son and jokes that playing with fire is the favorite part of her day.
