Lampwork, glass beads

Get to Know

We have been making beads for 6 years. We are lucky to have our studio in the basement of our home, so that we can make beads whenever the fancy strikes. We only have room for one torch, however, so sharing the flame is part of our routine. This gives each of us time to think about what will be created next, or just a bit of time to read and relax. We use glass from Italy, Germany, China and the US. We are very fond of glass with a high silver content, which adds another dimension to the colors we use. There is so much more to explore with this medium, so many different directions to go, we have only scratched the surface. We look forward to more exploration.
