These are some of the lampwork beads I make.
Each of the focal and accent beads are hand made using an open flame. This process is known as lampworking. I use a mix of propane and oxygen as the fuel to spark my flame. Melted glass is wrapped around a metal rod to create a bead. Additional colors of glass, metal and stones are added for accents. Each bead is then placed in a kiln for 12 hours to cool
