Beyond The Torch Studio
Sheila Olason

I spent my artistic career in the Pacific Northwest and was inspired by some of the most influential names in modern glass. I create veiled glass beaded jewelry, rivet lined beads and small assembled sculptures. The Bead Riveter Tool Kit, developed in my studio makes the creation of metal lined riveted beads quick, easy and economical.
After a long career in the Northwest, I relocated to the warm and beautiful Southwest. My experience of producing Art Festivals, Art Charity Events and as a Gallery Director has give me a well rounded understanding of the art world and my place in it.
