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. It's an ancient art skill known as lampworking or flameworking. From the start of actually making a glass bead, to adding the finishing touches of a completed piece, my work is as unique as the person wearing it. Creating beads and designing jewelry takes time and patience. Support artists and buy handmade. Thank you for visiting. Enjoy my work!
Lampworking is a type of glasswork where a torch or lamp is primarily used to melt the glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. It is also known as flameworking or torchworking, as the modern practice no longer uses oil-fueled lamps.
