Lampwork Glass Bead Jewelry Handmade In Eugene, Oregon

With Robert and Brandy’s thirty years' combined glass bead making experience, natural settings and materials are invoked using soft glass rods and sterling silver foil, manifesting one of a kind recreations of landscapes from the desert to the sea in simple beautiful focal beads.

We make every one of our glass beads using Italian Effetre/Moretti glass rods, from the island of Murano, wound in the traditional lampwork/flamework process using a propane and oxygen torch, and modern tools.

Stretching the rods of glass into thin stringers, we twist and layer multiple colors together to form one of a kind impressionist glass "paintings"~
kiln-annealed for hours for durability, fully cleaned of bead-release, and set only with Sterling Silver Findings.

Frequently asked questions
Do you make the beads yourself?

Yes!
B.B. has made lampwork glass beads for years, and taught R.B. to make them in 2009! Now R.B. makes almost all of them in our home studio in Eugene, Oregon.
B.B. makes them all into pendants and necklaces, using only high quality .925 Sterling Silver findings.
The beads are kiln annealed and made from Italian Glass from the island of Murano, Italy.

Why so little feedback?

For a couple of years, we had our Square account connected to the Etsy shop, and every sale made in person was counted by Etsy. Unfortunately, there was no avenue for the buyer to leave feeeback, so the sales added up without any feeeback… thus the lopsided numbers.
