Pierre Walker Thompson
Pierre’s Beads
Aztec, NM. USA


I am a glass bead maker, lampwork process. I started off as a metal
smith and then fell into glass. I have managed to bring my head out
of the glass for a new breath and now am working on renewing my
metal working skills to make metal beads. Need to keep my focus

with others who are creative.
