Kim Lonie


Kim has a difficult and hot talent - making glass beads using hot molten glass wrapped around metal rods.  To make these beads, a gas torch is used at incredibly hot temperatures.  Every bead is made individually and no two are ever alike.  Kim also makes fun wine-themed items out of corks as well as various other crafts.  When she isn't making glass beads, she works for Rock Wall Winery which inspires her wine themed crafts.
