If you are new to Glass Lampwork Art, each bead is Individually hand crafted by heating solid glass rods to a molten state - the beads are created by wrapping and layering the molten glass around a steel rod (which becomes the bead hole). Depending on the skill of the Glass Lampwork Artisan, the end result can be phenomenal ! Lampworking involves carefully manipulating hot molten glass ... and no paint or painting is involved ! All of the U.S. Glass Lampwork Artisans that I purchase from - additionally kiln anneal their beads - hot beads are placed in a digitally controlled kiln, which allows the beads to cool at the same rate (from the inside out) creating a stronger & more durable glass bead (eliminating unexpected breakage). My jewelry creations are designed to be worn daily and to eventually become heirlooms.
