About ShebaMakeda

I make one of a kind, flameworked glass beads, jewellery and sculptures. My handmade designs are heavily influenced by the art and artifacts of ancient cultures, as well as contemporary abstract art. Each of my creations is created by me in the flame of my torch before being sent off to their new owners. If you'd like to know when i post beads for sale then send me an email to join my mailing list at: evelyn@shebamakeda.com. Be sure to add my email to your address book so my messages don't end up in your spam folder.
