About me

Who is standing behind Izzy’s Glass Beads? It’s me, Isabella Della Rowere, born and raised in Vienna/Austria. I’ve always been creative. First of all my mom and my grandmother encouraged me to paint, draw, crochet and bead.
After many selfmade greeting cards and seed bead jewelry I found a website showing hand made glass beads. I was instantly courious.Soon I got a Firedevil (my first torch) which was too weak for me. I needed a hotter flame so I invested in a Minor burner and after that in a GTT Scorpion torch which I use with two oxygen concentrators. I also have two kilns for cooling the hot beads and tons of tools, presses and glass rods.
In our new home I have a room just for me and my glass ๐Ÿ™‚
All this is supported by my beloved and patient husband. ๐Ÿ™‚
