Beth Williams – Beth Williams Studio
Combining glass, gold, and silver, Beth creates contemporary elegant jewelry, highlighted by the rainbow of colors and textures inherent in glass rods. Having been a studio metalsmith for many years prior to focusing on glass, Beth’s designs balance all the elements in her materials, resulting in pieces that the owner can wear with comfort and pleasure. Pure gold granules accent the surface of Beth’s lampworked beads, reflecting her signature style that has been recognized in publications and exhibitions across the country.
“The love of my craft is what inspires me; the way that the colors in glass are transformed by light seems truly magical. The jewelry I make reflects this passion and is reflected from my gardens, the ocean, the marshes, and the ever-changing sky and light of Cape Ann. Handmade multi-colored flameworked glass beads, embellished with tiny 24 karat gold granules, are etched to a soft satin finish and then are combined with contemporary fine metal beads and wirework to create classic pieces of understated elegance. The resulting work is very tactile, dimensional, invites touching, and is -above all- very wearable.”
