About

Hi,

My name is Silke Buechler.

I have been caught by the bead virus in summer 2004. I saw some lampwork beads in a shop window and yet at the same day spent hours to investigate, surfed on the Internet and read all about lampwork beading. One week later I sat at the torch by myself and tried the first beads.

“Ulysses’ breath came to a halt as soon as he saw her. She wore a loose shimmering raiment and bright curls floated down her shoulders splendorously gleaming by the glow of the fire.
‘She must be a goddess!’ thought he. ‘No mortal being can be as beautiful as she is!’ And he was right: Her name was Calypso, daughter of Atlas.”
