Welcome, my name is Jere Watson.  I'm a so many things to so many people.  Wife, mom, grandmother, artist, daughter.  The list is long, wonderful, terrifying, exciting and different every day.

A few years ago I discovered the beauty of lampwork glass beads.  Lampwork glass is one of the oldest art forms know to man dating back over 5000 years.  Modern lampwork artists melt long, pencil shaped lengths of glass using torches fueled with propane and oxygen.  As the glass turns molten,  it’s wrapped around steel mandrels where the artist can then sculpt and shape the glass.

To say I became captivated would be an understatement.  I read and educated myself until I decided I simply had to learn this ancient craft.   Completely self taught, I'm proud to be offering my beads for sale at my Etsy shop and art shows.

I am so fortunate to be able to take my love of glass to the next level by creating beautiful glass art.  A selection of my art can be seen in the gallery and also in my Etsy shop.  

I hope you enjoy and have fun while you visit with me!
