Astrid Riedel
Astrid Riedel

Originally a goldsmith, Astrid Riedel has been working with glass for more than 12 years. She has an insatiable need to push the boundaries in glass bead art. She likes to try new techniques with beads, some from the glassblowing world, and some from other art influences. Riedel loves to create wearable glass art necklaces with very few non-glass materials. Riedel has been teaching around the world for more than five years, and currently resides in Pretoria, South Africa.
