I am Jeri Warhaftig - glass artist, author, and teacher. I sell my work at glass art/bead shows and I regularly offer workshops for beginners and advanced beginners in my Northern New Jersey studio and at other venues. Together with my husband, Neil Fabricant, we manufacture and sell the "puffy mandrel" and lucite bead displays.
Instructor Jeri Warhaftig is a long-time member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers and has been making beads for almost 15 years. Her work appeared as a finalist in the Bead Dreams Competition in 2004 and 2005. She has taught at many nationally known venues such as the Bead and Button Show, Glass Craft and Bead Expo, and many smaller studios and workshops. She has written for many major publications (most recently The Flow) and authored two books, Glass Bead Workshop (2008) and Creating Glass Beads (2011).
Jeri participates in several local and national bead shows.
