Heather Trimlett

Heather Trimlett Heather Trimlett is a highly respected teacher and flameworking artist. Her knowledge of glass beadmaking is extensive, shaped by over 25 years at the torch. Heather’s work approaches perfection and pushes the envelope in shape and form. Her beads are vibrant in their color and enthusiastic design just like she is, their color palette a crisp and clean mix of primary colors. Heather’s first attempt at beadmaking was in 1989 when the American glass bead movement was in its infancy. By 1992, she had an oxygen and propane torch, and in 1993, she attended her first SGB Gathering in Prescott, Arizona, and met an organized group of people doing the same thing.

Heather has been packing classrooms in San Diego and across the U.S. and Canada since 1994. She is a natural instructor - encouraging, demonstrative and patient.

Heather is the 2014 recipient of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers Hall of Flame award.
