Fire Dance Lampwork Beads & Jewelry
Denise Billups Walker
I spent most of my career teaching middle school art in Detroit, which I found to be an exciting and challenging assignment. From there I went to the elementary level and taught computer skills to 4th - 6th grade students.
I have always been interested in working with hot glass and find that lampwork beadmaking fulfills that desire. There is something hypnotic about working in the flame - it just draws you in.
I refuse to say how long I've been doing this because I feel it will raise the level expectation!

I love what I do and there is so much more glass exploration I want to do! So many new materials and tools become available everyday!
Am looking forward to 2013. There will be travel - we've done Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for probably 22 years and we are off to China this spring - can't wait!
