Introduction Ahoy! Thanks for tying up! Moor over to SEA OF GLASS BLOG, drop anchor & dig around in the treasure chest; you may find some jewels to take on your journey:spy-glasses, bangles, and rings for your ears! More in my ETSY SHOP. I've always dabbled in arts from sketching, painting, and needlework, to pottery and jewelry design. In recent years, I discovered glass bead making! I work on a dual fuel minor burner in my home studio. Since 2007, I've been teaching classes in beginning glass beadmaking. Married to a kind man for 34 years, and blessed with 2 beautiful sons. Most of our life we've been located on the coast of NC, with a detour along the way, including 6 years in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. In motherhood, I homeschooled our children from the cradle; they are now grown and accomplished young men who have set sail, earned degrees, and established careers. The crows nest is empty now, as we embark on a new voyage~just the captain and first mate. Happy cruising! I wish you JOY in your journey! ~Cynthia
