At the moment, no MTO available, everything you see is ready to go.
I'm working my way through a few years of precious bits and pieces that weren't enough for production--that lovely tangerine, for example.

Thanks for stopping by!

    It's been quite a ride!

    We're Chuck and Carolyn, lampworkers for more than 20 years....has it actually been that long?

    Chuck: Grew up in western Nebraska, in the fields and prairies. Moved to the east coast briefly, then headed for Alaska, where there weren't so many people.
    Bought a truck and drove from Boston to Fairbanks, with Smokey the cat in the back. (She settled down eventually)
    Got his pilots license, bought a plane, met his wife, and acquired the most beautiful daughter in the whole world.

    Carolyn: Born and raised in Alaska, almost born in an airplane as there was no doctor in Seldovia at the time. Grew up on a fishing boat, with salt water in her veins
    and fish scales in her hair. Remembers the Good Friday earthquake and pipeline days in Anchorage, canning salmon and cutting wood for winter....wishes she could go home again, sometimes. Was working on her pilots license when she met Chuck, so they had much in common immediately....

    Now they've come full circle to Nebraska, sunflowers and endless vistas, thunderstorms and tomatoes without a greenhouse. The most beautiful daughter in the world is growing up fast and making her own mark on the world.

    The menagerie has grown---two llamas watch over an assortment of goats, a sheep, chickens and cats. The cats will go out to pasture with the goats, as do the chickens.

    As always, we properly kiln anneal all our lampwork, from flame to kiln, for heirloom longevity.

    It's impossible to control how colors appear on different monitors--we photograph in daylight with flash, and edit for focus, but at the end of the day, glass will be glass. Please read the description and feel free to drop us a convo if you have any questions about colors.
    We don't use a "professional" set up, while that does show the beads at their very best, very few of us wear jewelry under those lights.





    Hole sizes:
    we most often use 1/16 and 3/32 mandrels but most bead measurements are listed in mm, so we've added the following for your convenience.

    The 1/16 mandrel converts to 1.58mm, with the bead release added the hole is approx. 1.8 to 2mm.

    The 3/32" mandrel converts to 2.38mm, with the bead release the hole is right at 2.5mm.

    The 1/8" mandrel converts to 3.17mm, with bead release the hole is about 3.30mm.
