Beads by Eileen

Artist: Eileen Hotham

What kind of items do you make?
I make glass beads and use the finished beads in stitch markers (I also knit!)

What got you interested in your art of choice?
I saw a demonstration of glass bead making at an arts fair and was fascinated.
I took a class in Glass bead making at the Pittsburgh Glass Center and was hooked.

What do you most enjoy about what you do?
I love making things and I especially love making beautiful things.

Do you have a favorite item or colorway?
I love all color, but I keep going back to purples and blues. I’m also very fond of iridescents and metallics (shiny!)

What is something you strive to offer the fiber arts community?
One of a kind stitch markers (can be used as pendants!)

What is your fiber arts superpower?
Even though I’m not doing fiber for this show, I will say that I am very good picking the right yarn for a project.
