Nancy’s Lampwork Jewelery

Nancy Bariluk-Smith is one of the nine artists in the Functional Art Show in The Pig Barn Gallery on October 8th and 9th.  (See my Events page for more details)I decided to ask Nancy to be in the show after going to one of her open studio days last year.  I bought earrings as a gift and a pair for myself.  I loved the detail on her small handmade glass beads and was especially drawn to her  unique signature earrings.   Nancy said, “I have been a creator, explorer and seeker for as long as I can remember. Expanding my experiences and pushing myself to learn and grown.I found fiber while traveling across New Zealand and Australia where the sheep roam wildly.
After 20 years of calling myself a fiber/ felt artist/ teacher I found the wonderful world of glass!! I packed up my wool and started making glass beads full time!
Its magical, mesmerizing and limitless!!
Bliss with a hot torch!!” Nancy’s Studio will be open this Saturday from 10-5 for the Washington County Cheese Tour.  You can visit her at 123 Gillis Hill Rd Salem NY  12865.  Or you can see her at Bedlam Farm in October.   Check out more of her work on her website.
