Nancy Simison

Nancy Simison, married and the mother of two grown sons, has lived in Sandwich for many years. A self-employed bead artist since 1991, Nancy has worked with beads from around the world until she began making beads herself after volunteering to learn lampworking for the Sandwich Glass Museum. Also a kiln worker, she finds that fusing glass and bead making are the perfect complement to each other in her designs. She has taken lampworking instruction from many nationally known bead artists in all parts of the country, but as a kiln formed glass worker she is largely self-taught.

Nancy is a member of the Boston Chapter of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers, the Society of Cape Cod Craftsmen, Artisan's Guild of Cape Cod, and Beadesigners International.
