I make beads that fit European Bracelets.  This is a picture of my personal bracelet.  I like to mix up the look with my handmade lampwork glass beads. Or it's fun to wear a single bead on a chain.  How do you wear your beads?

Always take time to remember what you love in life.

Always take time to remember what you love in life. Search deep within your soul to find your passion in life. These Are My Artisan Handmade Glass Lampwork Beads.  These beads are made with White, Grey and Black glass.  As you can see, they are still on the steel mandrel rods. The clay-like white coating on them is 'bead release', which helps getting the beads off easily. I then clean the holes out with my diamond tip dremel tool.

See these beads I made? 
Before making the beads, I dip the steel rods in "bead release" ( a white clay-like mixture) so the beads come off easily when cooled down.
