Dianne Collins (Beadmaker/Jeweller)

Hello and welcome. 

I grew up in Coffs Harbour where my father was a professional fisherman and an early love to the sea & all it's many life forms was fostered. This is reflected in much of my work. 

My aim as a beadmaker is to make unusual different and unique pieces. I happily combine old and new commercial beads with my new beads as well as found objects and non precious metals. 

My handmade beads are either ceramic or glass. 
Ceramic beads may be single fired coloured, gold leafed, raku fired, earthenware glazed or glazed/unglazed porcellainous stoneware. 

Torchworked glass beads are melted over a gas torch and wound around a steel rod. They may be decorated by frits, stringers, dots, millefiori, enamels, twisties, gold leaf and lustres.

Fused glass beads are made by melting layers of glass in the kiln and may have gold lustre, gold leaf, frits, stringers, dots and dichroic glass for decoration. 

My home gallery also includes handmade and wheelthrown pottery, small gift items, fused glass and unset gemstones.
