Every bead tells a story...
I'm working hard to update my Online Shop, retaking all of the photos with a wonderful new set-up! I will gradually add a few collections online every week. Please keep in mind that I ship by Canada Post and delivery may take a bit longer than usual.
Dragonfly Arts on Broadway, in Orangeville, where our lampwork studio is, is now open Tuesday, Friday and Saturdays from 11-3 for in-store browsing as well as for CURBSIDE pickup. They carry the most extensive selection of my work including jewellery and functional items such as pate and cheese knives, bookmarks and magnifying glasses. Everything I have online is available through Dragonfly Arts plus other one-of-a-kind pieces. You can arrange to pick something up by ordering from my Online Shop, by contacting me directly or by contacting Joan at Dragonfly Arts. Keep an eye on the Dragonfly website for the latest information on shopping options!
Welcome to Beth Grant Glass. I am a glass bead artist based in Orangeville, in the beautiful Headwaters area of Ontario. I use the lampwork beads I make to create one-of-kind pieces of sterling silver jewellery as well as other gift items such as pate and cheese knives, magnifying glasses, bookmarks and lots of other goodies. You will find many photos of jewellery on my website and I'm working towards adding photos of the gift items.
When I'm in my studio working, you can watch me creating beads. This is a fascinating process and well-worth the walk down the long hallway to the room at the back of Dragonfly Arts on Broadway, in downtown Orangeville, where my studio is located. If you can't make it in to watch you can learn how glass beads are made by watching this short video created by Headwaters Tourism!
You will find a recently re-organized showroom in the studio with the best selection of my work. I share the studio with Joan Hope, fellow glass artist and owner of the shop (you saw her in the video if you watched it!). Orangeville is a wonderful destination with interesting shops and a vast array of totally amazing restaurants so if you are in the area drop in! Even if I am not in the studio you can take your time, have a good look around and make a purchase if something inspires you to do so. I try to be in the studio on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 - 3. Please note that Dragonfly is closed Sundays and Mondays for the winter.
As you look around my website you will see that for me 'It's all about the colour!'. My beads are inspired by my adventures in Canada and beyond and I have set up my website to demonstrate this relationship (be sure to watch the banner at the top of this page!). If you click on the Bead Collections button on the left you will enter my bead world! You can learn more about me by visiting the About the Artist page. To watch a video of me in action please visit the Studio & Showroom. New Events will be added as they are confirmed. And be sure to sign up for an occasional newsletter (see below) to see the latest creations! Most of all have fun looking around!!!!
