Master Class 7: Beadmaking with Kristina Logan (excerpt)

Kristina Logan is internationally recognized for her precisely patterned, delicate glass beads, which she combines with metalwork to create jewelry and functional objects. In the Master Class video, Logan demonstrates her process of beadmaking at the torch, finishing the glass by cold-working, and incorporating her glass and silverwork into completed pieces of jewelry. Logan also discusses the history of glass beads and shares the philosophy of her work. Says Logan, "Beads are part of my lifelong fascination with art and ornamentation. Glass beads form a historical thread, connecting people and cultures throughout our history."
