These beads were vibrant in color and expert in artistry! Quite striking... I used the beads in two different items and the beads were the focal point. Also, this seller was very prompt and carefully packaged the item.

Thank you for purchasing beads or jewellery from Tillerman Beads.

I am a self-representing artist and am registered with the Self-Representing Artist registry, with SRA #P3, all the lampwork listed in the auctions is made by me in my studio in the Pennines in the north of England. Each bead is individually made using a Minor torch, Effetre/Moretti, Vetrofond, Reichenbach or other 'soft' glass. All beads are annealed in a Caldera Paragon digitally-controlled kiln, cleaned and examined for flaws before being presented for sale. Each bead is individually created to be unique and original, all beads are one of a kind pieces of glass art. I guarantee any lampworked bead I make to be durable under normal use and will replace any bead that cracks under normal wear or stress. All my beads are carefully annealed in a digitally-controlled kiln and examined closely before sale for any possible cracks or defects. I will not knowingly sell a bead that is anything but the finest quality.
