Hi! I'm Susan Kennedy, of SueBeads! I live in Pittsburgh, PA, with my two kids. I'm a single mom, cancer survivor, girlfriend, daughter, and glass bead maker! I have been making glass beads since 2005 - I started out by taking a class at the Pittsburgh Glass Center - I have taken several since. I loved lampworked beads so much, I just had to make my own. I really enjoy making glass beads, but that's not all I do! I enamel beads and charms, as well, and have taken an in-person and on-line class with Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. I have also attended ArtBLISS on two occasions and have taken on-line classes with Deryn Boyd Mentock (fabulous woman!).
I also help my boyfriend, occasionally. He is a general contractor and I have been known to paint, hang drywall, drive a tractor and roto-till with a Kubota!
