About the artist:

Kira Robertson (Burnin’ Beads by Kira) makes handmade glass beads, which are formed in the fire from coloured glass rods. Kira uses a variety of skills and techniques to create wonderfully whimsical beads and beautifully unique jewelry pieces. All of the glass pieces are properly annealed in a kiln for strength and durability. The beads are then meticulously cleaned and made into lovely, one-of-a-kind jewelry items, using quality findings, such as sterling silver.

Kira Robertson studied glass-blowing at the Haliburton School of the Arts where she learned the art of lampwork. After learning the basics from college, she developed her own techniques and a unique style that is showcased in her work today. Kira draws inspiration from everything fun and whimsical, and has a passion for creating.
