Announcement   I have been adding a few new listings of my Petals collection headpins and my very first flower cabochon.

I hope you like them. I intend to bring you more listings very soon.... so come back again.
Thank you for popping in 80))

^^^^^^^^^^^^ ------------- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

All my lampwork glass beads are lovingly made in my home workshop that sits at the bottom of my garden, we live in a valley at the foot of the Chiltern Hills with our famous 'White Lion' cut into the beautiful chalk hillside with wonderful inspiring views over the valley.

All my beads, buttons, cabochons including my headpins and 3D flowers are fully kiln annealed for strength and durability to help prolong their life, checked for flaws and cleaned of the bead release from the holes.

~~~CHATELLE Beads~~~
These are my big hole charm style beads. They have been made on a 5mm mandrel so the hole will be slightly larger than 5mm due to the bead release. They have been cleaned of the release and generally they do not come with a metal core.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop and you find something that jumps out and influences you to make a wonderous creation of your own!

Also My Facebook page is ChatElaine Jewellery where I post updates on what's new.

Thank you for popping in, please come back soon.

This has an excellent quality of finish, supported by strong depths of colour and tonal aspects,just love how they swirl and dance with each other. Well packaged, super fast delivery. Recommend.

About

How I started!

I make my lampwork glass beads in my home studio or workshop as I call it and spend many hours at the torch creating beads, headpins, buttons and cabochons. I started out as a Jewellery Designer but when I found lampworking, I decided I wanted to create the beads more. I still create some jewellery items on special occasions or for myself and family/friends too. Lampworking is my main enjoyment.

With my new skills making 3D sculptural flowers and leaves I am enjoying my sculptural journey in glass work. My flowers are blossoming into beautiful new blooms!! And now I am creating them as headpins or finials, as I like to call them, too!

There will be some changes to my shop over the coming months as I give it a bit of a revamp (long overdue) with lots of new items and designs coming your way, so please pop back often to find out what is on offer.

I hope to have some exciting new designs and creations to interest you so please call in on me from time to time!!

    I started making lampwork beads in 2008 after many years of making jewellery, as I wanted to use them in my own creations. Recently I have started to make 3D flowers and buds such as roses, along with other types of flowers, leaves and even wings.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 20, 2014
All my handmade lampwork glass beads are made in my UK workshop in the Chiltern Hills, they have all been kiln annealed to strengthen them to remove stresses caused by working the glass in the flame.

This, however, does not make them completely indestructable,(they are made from glass you know!!) Please take care with them as you would any glass item and they will last a very long time.

I do guarantee my work and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any problems whatsoever!

I hope you have pleasure from using my beads as I have in creating them!

I do not refund for misuse.
Additional policies and FAQs
Generally I make One of a Kind (OOAK) beads but they can come in a series, even so each bead is individually made which make them unique.

I have introduced some repeat styles they are 'made to order' but they are still individual as all my beads are made one at a time at the torch.

I also take custom orders (Commissions), so in some instances I may be able to re-create some of my beads in a similar style or in different colourways especially if you have purchased beads from me in the past. Please be aware that due to the handmade quality of my beads they do vary is size and shape so they will not be an exact copy!

Please convo me to discuss any items you may like made to order.
