Beaver Island Jewelry

Nancy Peterson at workBeaver Island Jewelry sells beads filled with nature and the secrets of Beaver Island- for jewelry designers and bead collectors.

A natural gas torch, along with oxygen, is utilized to melt glass rods. The beads are then annealed or hardened in a digitally controlled kiln overnight. Moretti (Murano, Italy) soft glass is mostly used but also some German and American glass.

Beaver Island Jewelry owned by Nancy Peterson makes glass lampwork beads and creates jewelry from these beads in Ann Arbor, Michigan or in the summer on Beaver Island. Glass beadmaking lessons are available seasonally on Beaver Island or in Ann Arbor, MI.

Abstracta System For Sale

This Abstracta ( system is for sale. I only used it 2 times and then stopped doing large shows. It would be great for jewelry or small item selling at shows or for a shop.


It sets up with black matte poles and connectors with glass for the shelves. The highest point is about 76” and the length about 143”. This is available to pick up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am asking $1000 for the whole system (originally about $2000).
