Lara Lutrick's Profile
My name is Lara Lutrick and I make handmade beads (aka Lampwork beads). I have been making beads part time since 1997. It is my passion and is so much fun. I'm a full time RN as well and live outside of Seattle Washington.
Using a flame to manipulate glass into a bead is like magic. The solid glass becomes a viscous liquid, which can be manipulated into untold numbers of objects. As an art form, bead making is unique. The results are immediate and the art is wearable and can be used in creating beautiful jewelry.
Please note that beads and jewelry in the photographs are enlarged to show details. I try my best to match the colors in the picture to the beads in my hand, but different monitors may cause the colors to vary. All beads are kiln annealed for durability and holes cleaned. Annealing assures the beads will strong, but please keep in mind…
