Every bead tells a story...
My Online Shop is loaded with a great selection of sterling silver necklaces and earrings making it a simple process to shop from home! Shipping in Canada is free but please keep in mind that I ship by Canada Post and delivery may take a bit longer than usual.
The largest selection of my work, including functional gift items such as pate and cheese knives, bookmarks, salad servers and magnifying glasses as well as sterling silver jewellery is available at Dragonfly Arts on Broadway, in Orangeville. Please check their website for current hours. Our lampwork studio at Dragonfly Arts is now open for in-person browsing. Almost everything I have online is available through Dragonfly Arts plus other one-of-a-kind pieces. You can arrange to pick something up at Dragonfly Arts by ordering from my Online Shop, by contacting me directly or by contacting Joan at Dragonfly Arts.
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 refreshed showroom in the studio with the most extensive 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 making beads on Saturdays from 10-3, other days by chance or appointment.
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!!!!
