Welcome to my new website.
I have been making glass beads for about 14 years. This process is called Lampworking. I melt glass rods of glass over a torch onto a stainless steel rod (mandrel) coated with a clay like material called bead release. I make my lampwork beads out of Morretti Italian glass and a hard glass called Boro. They are fully annealed in a kiln, which makes them strong. I also make buttons from glass and copper/enamels. Some of the buttons are double buttons that can be used in double buttons holes.
I will be adding new beads and other goodies weekly, so please check back frequently.
Thanks for checking out the new site and please don’t hesitate to ask questions.
