I've been making zipper pulls lately and folks are loving them. Perfect for a jacket, on a suitcase or on your handbag.(I'd buy several if I were you and give some as gifts)! Another big seller when I travel is just a single bead with a silver chain. Send me an email and I'll help pick one out for you!
Please enjoy my collection of beads and special bead items. Making these beads reflect my passion for creating smiles as well as unique handmade (by me) one of a kind gifts. I think you will find the perfect hard-to-find item for yourself, your employees or customers, as well as your best friend in the world.
I am a Self Representing Artist, the only slave labor in these pieces is my own.

The Glass Work of Jan Parker
Every Product is Hand Crafted and Unique
The bracelets are real attention-getters. They are fun, elegant, funky, earthy, feminine and chunky — think of an adjective and it can probably be applied to one of these unique bracelets. I have a lot of fun making the beads and then putting the bracelets together with different findings and a toggle clasp of sterling silver for the closure.
Make a bold and powerful statement when you wear one of these glass bead necklaces. They are stunning, artistic and distinctive. When I wear them – all I hear are oohs and aahs!
I love these decorative pins and use them as a cardigan closure, shawl pin or purely for embellishment. One of a kind glass beads with silver findings dangle from 3 loops on the pin. Very stylish, beautiful and fun.
With all the typing and work most of us do on computers every day, writing with a pen becomes a special occasion. Make it even more so as you sign your name or write your story with these unique and beautifully made pens. The perfect gift for the person who “has everything”. Buy one to give and one to keep.
My very own invention! Not only do these keep your place in the book you are reading. They look fabulous hanging from books on a shelf. Each Book Thong is different. Order several, they make great gifts.
|Key Chains and Zipper Pulls|
My friend Mary Lynn wanted her key chain to be easy to find when she reached in her purse. Bright, colourful and bumpy, glass beads serve this purpose. And who doesn’t love a new reason to buy a glass bauble!
|I Ching Beads
It is suggested that we use the I-Ching as a tool to tap our subconscious knowledge rather than as a means to predict the future. Therefore ask yourself a question such as " What should I focus on in xyz situation?" or "What are my true feelings about such and so?", instead of " What will happen with xyz?"
|Bead of the Month Club |
If you are a glass bead collector or just like to give and receive special surprises each month, the bead of the month club is for you! Join now and you will receive a unique, handmade glass bead made with love and joy, by Jan Parker each month for a year.
Sun Catchers really lets the light in. Hang these in your window and enjoy the sparkles of the sun.
Zipper pulls! These are perfect for a jacket or suitcase adding functionality and style.
|Mystery Bag of Beads |
Every once in a while, I’ll put together some loose beads ala “grab bag” style. No promises on colours or shapes, but I can say they will be treasures. Each bag of mixed beads will have between 10 and 20 beads in it.
