One World One Heart


Hello and Welcome! On your journey around the world you have now landed in Indiana in the Midwest of the United States. I am your hostess, Julie Miller. I’ve been lampworking, that is making glass beads and beadie type things, for about 6 years now. I used to have a day job. I used to serve 9 to 5 in a cubicle but an early recession liberated me from that and when the next job was just not to be found, I took it as a sign that maybe it was time to take a leap of faith and do something else. I have been working full time in glass every since!

I make glass vessels, wee vessels I call weessels and I make glass globe pendants. I also make hollow beads and other lampwork beads as the whim and muse nudge me. I mostly enjoy working from my studio in my home. I’m a home body and I like to be able to torch when an idea hits me or go visit with friend on the computer. Sometimes, it’s good to just take a nap with cats and go back to “work” later. For the business end of things, I mostly sell online but I also participate in some local and national shows.

In my spare time, I am a rabid movie fan particularly sci-fi. I also enjoy dabbling with jewelry making. I mostly stick with glass and my glassy friends at ISLAGA our local lampwork club and chapter of ISGB.

Thank you for taking time out of your tour to visit with me! If you would like, please leave a comment below. I will add your name to the drawing for this lovely sea shell globe necklace. I know it’s an odd keepsake from the Midwest but would you really want a globe full of corn or soy beans? The globe was blown at my torch, filled with sea shells from Florida, and sealed with a handmade sterling silver cap and wire bail. It’s strung on brown greek leather cord with a sterling silver C clasp.



To win, you will need to leave your name and email address or a way to contact you if you win! I will choose the winner and contact them on February 17. (If you do not respond with a mailing address within 5 business days, I will choose another winner) This opportunity is open to everyone around the world. If you win, you win, no strings attached and no shipping charges apply.
Good luck and happy journey!

  7. I love this, and remember it from last year too! In fact, I posted about it. I'm not surprised this has become a replacement for your job.

    I'm a sci-fi fan too. What's your favorite movies?

    I have three blogs, so three OWOH posts...

  28. What a beautiful and unique necklace! It reminds me of the little water bottle we have in our bathroom. Last August we went to California to visit family and while we were at the beach, I had the bright idea to bring the beach home with us. The kids filled the bottle with ocean water, added sand and seashells they found. Our bathroom has an ocean theme, so that is where the bottle lives along with a small glass cup of sea shells that were too big for the bottle. ;D

    ANYWAY! I'd love to be included in your drawing. :)

  46. Hi, Julie! I'm also rather "obsessed" with making my own glass beads, but I've yet to try something like your gorgeous vessels! This is my first even OWOH event and I'm having so much fun discovering great blogs like yours from around the world. I would love to enter your giveaway for that gorgeous sea-shell filled hollow necklace.

    If you have time, please stop by mine (#347 on the list) for a chance to win one of my handmade sterling and glass European big-hole charm beads too.

  177. I must admit, I think a corn-based necklace could be pretty darn cool! But this is nicer.;) Besides, surely parts of the midwest were underwater once! I know parts of my Texas were, I still find fossil shells...
