Announcement   My European Charm Beads fit all major brands. The small core beads only fit one brand which uses a smaller diameter bracelet. If you have a question regarding which beads fit which bracelets, please convo me as I'm no longer able to put any brand names in my listings.

Handmade lampwork glass European charm beads, dot, storm, encased, sterling silver beads. Lampwork bead sets for jewelry artists.

I use Effetre, Vetrofond, Lauscha, Double Helix, Precision 104, TAG and ASK glass. All my beads are kiln annealed to insure durability and long life but keep in mind that they are made of glass. All big hole beads are hand lined using sterling silver. If you are not 100% satisfied please email me within 14 days of receiving your beads. I want happy customers!

Due to the type of glass I use and the way I use it, the vast majority of my beads are one of a kind and truly unique. Therefore remaking anything of mine that has already sold is practically impossible. My advice is that if you see something for sale that you really like, to snag it. I can no longer take on remake requests, sorry.

About

Glass Addiction

Long ago I took some jewelry classes and was immediately drawn to lampwork beads. Something about the pretty colors, the sparkle and shine, the opaque and transparent, the designs and shapes, it was all mesmerizing. I would stare at the beads on eBay every night like I was in some kind of trance. My husband got a bit sick of it and decided to take me out shopping for my own torch so I could just make them myself.
I made my first beads in October of 2003 without any knowledge I would be so completely addicted to it years later. Not only did my husband get me started in this but in 2006 he began building me my own studio from the ground up and a year later I had my own space to create.
