Lampwork beads are made by hand
by a skilled artisan
melting rods of glass in a flame.
Tricky work when you think about it!
Especially when you look at how detailed
and beautiful the beads can be.

It is a craft that requires great skill and attention.
The results can be phenomenal!

The beads can be more expensive than your average
mass made glass BUT you are buying real art work,
something that has
been made with love, care and attention.
Supporting an artist and allowing that craft to carry on
All that AND you get some wonderful beads to work with.
What's not to love?!
