Kristina Logan Ornament Magazine Cover January 2017
2017 ORNAMENT Magazine, Vol.39.3

I feel grateful and proud to start 2017 with such exciting news. Twenty-five years ago when I started making glass beads I remember waiting impatiently for every issue of Ornament to be delivered and savoring each page, reading and re-reading it cover to cover. Before the Internet was flowing with information, Ornament Magazine kept me connected to the world of makers and their art. I am thrilled to be featured in this current issue!




Kristina is featured in an article in the International Society of Glass Beadmakers Publication: Glass Bead Evolution Volume 2 – Issue 2 – 2014
