Metallic Magic: Infusing Metals into Lampwork Beads

Incorporating metals into beads adds a distinct charm, resulting in a one-of-a-kind appearance shaped by your technique. The inclusion of silver offers the possibility of crafting silver, gold, or dual-toned effects through careful encasement. By combining transparent glass colors, metals can take on silver, gold, purple, turquoise, orange, yellow, teal, or even fuchsia shades when applied strategically.

Blue Chalcedony Frit

These beautiful beads were made with different base glass colors and the same reactive Gaffer blue chalcedony frit. It is pretty amazing how different all the reactions are just by using different base glass colors. This frit really surprised me on how pretty the beads turned out. They created a nice organic look & feel.

Looks Good Enough to Eat - Lampwork Beads

The fuchsia pink, ivory, and dark brown colors in this lampwork bead look really nice together. For some reason, it really reminds me of candy or ice cream. I do not even eat ice cream, which might be a crime. Lactose and I are not friends.

This bead turned out beautifully. I just love all the reactions that happened in the ivory in this bead. This was one of those wonderful mornings like Christmas when you get pleasantly surprised when you see the bead for the first time.
