Handmade Lampwork Beads, Bead Sets and Jewelry

Bellevue, Washington | On Etsy since 2017

Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    All the charms in the purse charms/zipper pull section are buy one get one free through January 2021! For every charm you add to your cart, send me a note with the listing number (you can find that number in the title) of an additional charm and I'll send it along as my gift.

I offer free shipping over $35, and will gladly combine shipping. If you see a bead set you like, I'll gladly create a custom necklace or bracelet from it.

My passion is creating smaller, delicate, encased floral beads - a technique that's taken years to learn. Each glass color has a different viscosity, different levels of heat tolerance, and different reactions to heat and other colors. Building tiny layers of glass requires a steady hand and attention to detail in the flame. All beads are kiln-annealed overnight and drill cleaned.

Thank you for stopping by. Especially thank you for coming to Etsy to seek out and support small businesses. You have kept me going when local shows and venues had to cancel month after month. How very grateful I am for your purchases. Here's to brighter days ahead with even more love and laughter, hugs and gratitude.

An extra special thank you for supporting lampworkers and valuing our products. You truly are our oxygen.

The Story of Annie Alta

I Love the flame. I love painting tiny pictures with hot glass.

Hello, my name is Val. I started lampworking in 2010 to honor my mom and the strong beautiful women who taught me so much. The shop's name (Annie Alta) is part Aunt Ann, who loved to sketch flowers and trees, and Gramma Alta, a constant comforting presence of steadfast compassion, faith, love, and positivity to everyone around her.

If you want a special bead or bead set for a project, I would love to help. If you are planning a wedding I will craft unique and beautiful necklaces in your wedding colors. For a birthday, holiday or special occasion, a custom artisan lampwork necklace is truly a keepsake.

Thank you for visiting. Be safe. Stay strong. Remember what matters. Be kind to you always.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I can extend the length of any necklace by adding a color-coordinated chain at the neck. Just tell me how much longer you need it to be.

I can stamp initials or a short word or two on a color-coordinated metal charm and attach it at the clasp.

I can change any clasp from a magnet clasp to a color-coordinated toggle, lobster, or hook and eye.

I'll gladly create a custom necklace or bracelet from any bead set listed here.
