--All of the lampwork beads are made by me, one by one, in my home studio. If you see something you would like in a special size, different color, or have a design suggestion, please let me know. I will do custom orders, time permitting.
--And just a note - the beads you see pictured are the ones you are purchasing, not something "just like" or "similar"
--In my "finished jewelry" section you will also find some of my giant large hole beads. They are vintage-looking lampworked art glass with hand forged mixed metal components. Each piece is unique and all are created by hand using mostly old world methods. First the bead is made by melting glass with a torch into a specific shape and design using various colors of glass and techniques. Then the finished bead is kiln annealed for lasting strength. After this process is complete, the metal components are hand forged to fit the size and coloring of the bead. Bead caps are cut from various metals - copper, brass, or silver - and then manipulated by hammering or etching a pattern and then a patina is added for warmth. I enjoy mixing colors of metal depending on the colors of the bead itself. When this process is complete and a desired look is obtained, the finished caps and bead are assembled using tubing that then rivets all the pieces in place. These treasures range in size and make wonderful pendants.
