We live in such a mass produced world that it is easy to forget that gifted glass artisan's are sitting in their studio's, creating beads at their torch, one at at time (and that their talent comes from years of practice as they refine their techniques). None of the lampwork beads that I use in my designs and creations are from a bead store and/or a craft store ... I purchase my lampwork beads directly from skilled glass lampwork artisans, that live in the U.S.

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 !
