Disappointed, unfortunately. The beads are magnified to a huge degree and so one is lulled into thinking that the beauty of these beads will be obvious to the naked eye. They probably are beautiful but not in the size I bought.

About

Addicted to Lampwork...

All the beads here at The Fyre Faerie have been individually handmade at the torch by me, Nicky Townsend!

I work with soft glass, Effetre, Lauscha, Reichenbach and some speciality glasses.

My lampworking journey began in August 2012 and I’m still learning something new every day. Due to the fact that each bead is individually handmade, they may not all be exactly the same in shape and uniformity of size etc, each bead is totally unique.

All of my beads are kiln annealed, cleaned thoroughly of all bead release by hand with a dremel tool and a diamond bit reamer, they are then checked for quality and cracks. I will only sell beads which I am happy to use in my own jewellery designs.

The Studio...
I was very lucky to have my partner, Andy, convert our summer house into a fantastic lampworking studio. I work on a Carlisle Mini CC lampworking torch which is connected to an oxycon and propane gas tank. It was converted to comply with safety regulations and has proper extraction and heat resistant surfaces and it really is an amazing place to work.

Lampworking truly is an addiction, and I’m proud to say I’m hooked!
