Lampwork beads are created individually by artists using an open flame torch and colored glass rods. The artist melts glass and shapes the beads using tools and the flow of the molten glass. This is a time and skill intensive craft and I am proud to be able to offer lampwork beads to my customers while supporting these artisans.

I'm a self-taught and avid knitter & crocheter, and my passion for the crafts has spilled out into making beautifully useful tools for myself and my fellow fiber enthusiasts.
