chestnutridgedesigns' Shop Announcement

Hi Everybody:) I will taking a break from July 30-August 20th. I will be listing and shipping, but will have limited internet access, so my response time to convos might be slow:) Thank you for another wonderful year, you guys are the best!!! Laura

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. Every bead in my store has been carefully created individually using Effetre, Vetrofond, CIM and Lauscha glass. 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 10-14 days because of volume, 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 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.
