About

Who am I? OK, let’s try and figure it out.

Hello I’m Joe Holford. Serial crafter/hobbiest/diy anything, oooh I need to try that!…kinda guy.

If you’ve done a little looking around here at www.AvenueBeads.com you may have already figured out that my main passion is glass. I love to create small works of art in glass that people will treasure and wear for many years to come. The majority of my work consists of glass pendants, glass focal beads, and glass marbles. When I’m feeling sculpturish (is that a word? It is now…) I really enjoy making my animal beads with all their whimsical greatness that makes me smile as they come to life in the flame.

Aside from working with glass I also greatly enjoy the graphic arts and have my own small but growing greeting card line. You can see my work at TwistedOakGreetings.etsy.com.

When I’m not behind the torch or drawing, painting, gardening, or engrossed in some craft project, then I’m probably blogging about my newest adventure of renovating our new old house at www.TwoStudsandAHammer.com. Check it out, you may get some laughs out of it.
