Why Lampwork Beads are Ideal Centerpieces

Jewelry has long been a favored way to showcase one's personality and individual tastes. Crystals, gemstones, and interesting patterns are woven in a variety of colors and themes to match any taste. Lampwork beads take that individual preference a step further. Lampwork beads are hand-blown beads that are shaped and molded to create unique designs and shapes.

Handmade Lampwork Beads

Handmade Lampwork Beads

Lampwork beads are handmade one at a time by using a torch and a melting glass to make original glass beads. Occasionally, a bead can be made again, but it's rare that they're ever identical, making each bead one of a kind.

Lampwork Beads For A Unique Pair Of Earrings

Lampwork Beads For A Unique Pair Of Earrings

The art of lampworking is a centuries-old technique for creating beautiful and unique works of glass. Traditionally, the process involved using oil lamps to carefully and precisely mold liquid glass into intricately designed pieces. For most of its history, this technique was restricted to only a handful of artisans in Europe, but the quality of the pieces it produced was too eye-catching to ignore.

Lampworking caught on slowly in America with artists working from scratch to perfect something they had no formal instruction in. Today, the process has been refined enough that lampwork glass beads can be used for just about any kind of jewelry. 

A Gift that Keeps Giving!

A Gift that Keeps Giving!

Have you received handmade, beaded earrings? If so, you know the time and creativity spent in making those earrings. However, you also relish in the thoughtfulness of the person who gave them to you. It takes a special person to pick out the right set of earrings for a person.

Handmade, beaded earrings, are one of a kind. An artist makes these gems and is not in the business of "mass production." Each piece is cleverly designed, knowing that the person who will receive the earrings will love and cherish the unique gift.

Lampwork Beads: Sheer Imagination

Lampwork Beads: Sheer Imagination

Imagine it: an artist, thinking outside the box, experiments with melting a bit of glass in the heat of a cooking fire.  Centuries later another artist successfully melts glass in the flame of an oil lamp using his own breath as a bellows.  Imagine their excitement as they roll the glass into a small bead.  Oh, the possibilities! For another several centuries, artists continued to use lamps for their heat source, producing unique beads, hence the name lampwork beads
