Leah Fairbanks…


I own a glass shop called “The Mandrel” where I host classes taught by well known glass bead makers… This month Leah Fairbanks came down from Ashland, Oregon to teach a 3 day class. 

We’re on day one… this is Leah:

These are Leah beads:

Here’s some close up:

Her beads are stunning.  Please check them out at or you can see them in person if you happen to be in Vegas this April 9-11 where she’ll have booth at the Glass Craft Expo which is held at the South Point Casino. 

I’ll be there Thursday (which means The Mandrel will be closed on Thursday April 8 and Friday April 9) and I’m taking my very first marble class with Josh Mazet… yay!
