Jane Buelow's Profile

About

Hello and thank you for visiting my Etsy website!
~~~
My name is Jane and I am a Lampwork Bead artist. All of my beads are handmade and have been individually created in the flame by me in my breezeway glass studio here in Wisconsin, hence the name "BreezewayBeads".
~~~
I love creating something so unique! I have been selling beads for several years on Etsy with the seller name BreezewayBeads. Knowing that my beads are now owned by people all over the United States and in many different countries is so amazing! They are all handmade, one-of-a-kind and have been individually created in the flame by me in my glass studio. I am constantly experimenting with my huge collection of glass and frit (Hi my name is Jane and I am a frit-o-holic!). Each session at the torch brings something new and different for me and running to the kiln each morning is the best part…

There are never enough hours in the day for my beadmaking and the future is endless! My hope is to create long lasting beads that will inspire others to create beautiful jewelry!

My beads are made with imported Italian Effetre/Moretti glass, German Lauscha glass, Vetrofond glass, pure silver leaf and foil and assorted glass frit. I use an oxygen and propane torch. My beads are wound on 1/16" or 3/32" mandrels, the mandrel size will be noted in the descriptions. Each one of my glass creations goes straight from the flame into my computer controlled kiln. They are then properly annealed overnight for strength & long lasting durability. The next day the beads are soaked in soapy water, removed from the mandrels and the holes are cleaned with a diamond bit dremel.

I try to make my descriptions as accurate as possible, if you have any questions or need more pictures, just send me an email before purchasing. All my items come from a smoke free home. Please note: Lampwork beads are made from glass. If handled improperly they can break and injury could occur. Also, as with all beads and small items, they are not for young children.

I also a proud member of the following organizations & groups:
* ISGB * INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF GLASS BEADMAKERS *
* WETCANVAS * 4WC *
* LAMPWORK ETC.*
* SRA * Self Representing Artist...I am member #B52 and this means that I am the creator of these beads...made in the flame in my breezeway studio in Wisconsin. I create and represent my own original art work and sell it directly to you here on Etsy. I hope all of my customers enjoy using my beads as much as I enjoyed creating them!
