Lampwork Beads

Lampwork Beads is one of my favorite beads to work with. It is almost like a piece of art itself and adding one to an accessory immediately adds lots of interest to it.

This process of lamp-working involve using gas fueled torch to melt rods and tubes of clear and colored glass, usually made from soda-lime glass. When the glass reach a molten state, the artisan will blow and shape it to its desired state with tools and hand movements.
