Glass, Jewelry, Mixed Media

Sierra Art Trails Becky Caraco Designs picI started my glass journey about 10 years ago when I discovered I could fuse and shape glass in my pottery kiln! I was enamored by the bright colors and the remarkable magic that happens when glass is melted together! Then I found my true passion and calling when I learned the art of lampworking (I call it flame-working, because that’s really what it is!!)

Using a torch and colorful rods of glass, I sculpt the glass into beads with character and depth. I love the changeable nature of glass and the reactions that can occur with different combinations. My beads range from simple and colorful maybe with bumpy dots to complicated layered masterpieces! I especially love bold color combinations and unusual reactions between glass and other additives.

I make most of my beads for my own jewelry designs. I love to combine my hand-forged metal components, pearls, gemstones, and my glass into one-of-a-kind wearable art! Some pieces are simple and others are intricate. My “style” is whatever whim I have at the moment I begin to create the piece! Ever changing…never exactly the same!

The challenge, the rainbow of colors, and the malleable nature of glass continue to captivate me. A single bead of my making, a natural pearl, or an unusual artifact or gemstone often inspires my jewelry designs.
