Hello everyone,
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…

Now that my children are all grown, I am able spend many hours everyday practicing my craft, and each and every bead is truly a labor of love. I never fail to feel the rush of excitement as I open the kiln and discover my latest batch of treasures - there's always some pleasant surprises in there somewhere.
Thank you for visiting and letting me share some of them with you!
