Welcome to Purple Sparrow Glass, where colour is all around in my glass art. I get lost in the flame as the colours melt together to form a fresh and unique creation.

glass art memorial beads

Memorial Beads are keepsake pieces of memorial art made with a subtle display of cremation ash integrated into the design. These custom pieces can be worn as a pendant or displayed on a stand as a special memorial of a loved person or pet.

handcrafted glass bead jewelry

I create beads and fashion them into wearable pieces of art – earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. I make links and findings from sterling silver and copper wire and incorporate them into my pieces. Each piece is unique and one of a kind.

more glass treasures

These treasures are adorable home accessories. I use my beads to fashion bookmarks, wine stoppers, wine charms, and coffee scoops; as well as seasonal items such as Christmas ornaments and garden accessories. 



My heart jumped when I first saw one of Heather's glass pendants.  The turquoise colour reminded me of the ocean and I knew I wanted one just like it. When I called her to make a memorial piece for me she responded with such kindness and sensitivity.  It meant the world to me in a time when I needed it the most.  People often notice how beautiful the pendant is.  I feel blessed to have met Heather.
