Bead artist Amy Lemaire creates her work in a fearless fashion as she explores the evolution of beads throughout history. The artist teaches, chairs committees, lectures at conferences, and makes her own work, which is an exercise in fearless exploration. Amy strives to help her students see themselves in the history of glass and help the larger art world see flameworking as a serious path for exploration and study.
