Maggie Napier is a contemporary glass artist, jewellery maker and glass tutor. She specialises in the technique of Flame / Lampworking which involves working with molten glass in a torch flame. Her jewellery combines an abstract, organic aesthetic with an appreciation of the historical role of glass beads as talisman and currency.


Maggie Napier is a flamework glass artist who makes jewellery. Based in Co. Down, N. Ireland, she has  over 15 years of practice and research, experimenting and creating art glass beads and unique jewellery using the highest quality Italian and American glass.

Between graduating with a degree in Design and a Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Art she lived in Rome where an interest in ancient glass, archaeology and ornamentation evolved. This curiosity, the acquiring of her first flamework torch in 2005 and years of experimenting with molten glass has led to the creation of Glassistudio.

Today she hosts regular glass beadmaking workshops in her studio for beginners and experienced makers.

Her work is in the collection of the Arts Council of N.Ireland and has most recently been exhibited as part of the International Festival of Glass, Biot, France.
