Welcome to lampwork glass beads by Isinglass Design. These beads are individually handmade over a torch by me in my studio. Remember to keep your shoes on when you visit, or you will know what it really feels like to walk on broken glass! I'm currently living in the Ithaca, New York area.
Each color of soft glass is individually melted and manipulated over the flame of a torch. The molten glass is dotted, twisted, and shaped using everything from table knives to scissors and ice tongs. All of the beads are then kiln annealed to ensure the stability of the glass, and they are meticulously cleaned.
If you are interested in something you don't see here, please contact me. Since each bead is individually hand made, no two are ever exactly alike. All glass is guaranteed. If there's ever any problem, just contact me for a replacement or…
