Natasha Lenaghan is a lampwork glass bead artist whose passion for beaded jewellery began on a working holiday in Canada with a bead loom and tubes of seed beads.
Natasha’s foray into creating lampwork glass beads began in 2007 with a beginner class at Chockadoo Glass Studio in Sydney.
Following a move to Ireland, Natasha undertook classes with Ruzica Ruane (Cadenza Glass, Dun Laoghaire, Ireland).
On return to Australia with her family, Natasha set up her own lampwork glass bead making studio space at The Creator Incubator (Newcastle, NSW).
Natasha’s creations are inspired by colours and forms in nature – shells washed up on a shore, fallen seed pods, aerial photography of coast lines.
Natasha’s work has been included in the following exhibitions:
