Karen Hill is an American designer who has created one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of jewelry since 1987. In late 1989, she began to explore lampworked glass bead making. Karen Hill was attracted to using glass in her designs because of its beauty and the enduring quality of the material. Karen’s interest in the antiquities sparked her desire to make glass beads. As luck would have it, Karen’s husband Jim Hill, who is a geochemist, was able to experiment and helped Karen Hill to rediscover the ancient techniques of glass bead making, with a few unique twists of his own.
Linda Hill is from Riderwood, Maryland.
