I'm known as a glass bead maker, artist, photographer and nature lover. My beads are made by melting glass rods in a torch flame. Creating beads and designing jewelry takes time and patience. Be inspired.
These lampwork beads just came out of the kiln. The beads are still on their steel mandrels and you can see the clay-like bead release on each rod. This prevents the beads from sticking to the mandrel.
