Jewelry artist Bev McQuary will be at Penn Cove Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, “playing with fire,” or—rather—describing her Italian bead-making process.
Glass bead-making involves melting colorful glass rods around a mandrel with a propane/oxygen torch and then embellishing them with more glass. The combination of color and techniques, while maintaining control of hot glass, is an exciting dance on an incredibly small palette, she said. The glass beads are then incorporated into unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces with silver or copper wire.
