About Me
Glass Journey

Who Am I?

I'm Nancy Braker and I make glass beads.  That about sums it up. :-)

I have been making beads since January 2003.   Melting glass was like "finding myself" in some kind of profound way that I can't explain to non-glass folks.

My official artist statement:
I melt glass because I must.  It needs me to melt it and create it into little art pieces meant to be worn. 

As you can see, I don't take myself too seriously.  :-)   I am definitely quirky and silly.   I am age 40-ish, married now about 20+ years and living on a farm in Central Illinois. I am a CPA, formerly specializing in public pensions for a technology company, and I'm a mom to a great son.

I am currently getting a master's degree in Education, with hopes of teaching elementary education.

Need to know anything else?   Just email me from the Contact page.   Okay??

Enjoy!  ~Nancy
