My name is Lynn Nurge. I've been making lampwork beads for about 10 years now. I became fascinated with the process after seeing a demonstration done by Bernadette Fuentes who was making some of her wonderful aquarium beads. I'd been involved in many forms of arts and crafts throughout my life, but I knew then and there that this was the medium I had been seeking.
With three children in the house (four if you count my husband Al), finding the time to practice at the torch wasn't easy, but with persistence and the help and support of my friends and family I managed - and eventually turned out some pasable beads. Things just sort of took off after that, and now I'm a "professional" beadmaker.
I've been fortunate to have been mentioned in several publications, and have my entrapement bead featured as the "cover" in the book "The Art & Soul of Glass Beads" by Susan Ray...
