This set of 7 round lampwork beads are handmade with glass that has been specifically made for beadmaking.

After making these beads, before putting in the kiln to anneal and cool then, they have been briefly bathed for a few seconds in a reduction flame. On my torch, that means I turn the oxygen down and the propane up. The flame becomes cooler and its chemistry is altered. I'm not really sure how it happens but in some colours of glass, this causes metal oxides to come to the surface and coat it with a highly reflective metallic sheen. The surfaces are like tiny lemon and amber coloured mirrors all over!

The base glass is clear, it is the fine shards of silvered glass melted into the surface that have reacted and become streaky and shiny and a lovely warm golden yellow. The reflective surface looks amazing in natural light!

Each bead measures approximately 12mm x 9mm, bear in mind though that they are made by hand and eye only and so, whilst they are pretty uniform in size, there may be very slight variation in dimensions.

They have been thoroughly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability and then meticulously cleaned of bead release.

Your bead set will arrive with interspersed with glass spacer seed beads and well padded for their journey to you.
