Announcement   4/22/17 I will be out of town for a couple of days- I will be shipping all orders on Monday, April 24th, and then won't be shipping again until Monday, May 1st. Hopefully this will not be too big of an inconvenience.

Hi and welcome to my Etsy shop. I make detailed colorful lampwork beads and the occasional piece of jewelry in my glass studio overlooking the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Every bead in my store has been carefully created individually using Effetre, Vetrofond, CIM and Lauscha glass, silver foil, leaf and wire. All beads have been carefully inspected and cleaned after being annealed in a digital kiln.

I do take custom orders. My current turn around time is 7-10 days right now, if you convo me, I can give you a completion date for your order. I am happy to make special orders, but will require a 50% down payment on orders for new customers. So if you see something you like, just shoot me an email! Check out my feedback- I love my customers:)

As an aside, I hand mix most of the glass colors I use in my designs for the flowers. The base of the florals, as well as the transparent top layer mix together to create the unique colors. This means that duplication is not an exact science, and while I do my best, sometimes, due to glass batch differences and other chemistry mishaps, I cannot exactly recreate a bead exactly, although I do try to come as close to the originals as possible:)

Most beads are made on a 1/16" mandrel unless otherwise stated.

You can visit my website at www.chestnutridgedesigns.com and click on the link (at the bottom) to my new BLOG that details some of the techniques I use as well as other information about the process of lampworking.
