You will fall in love with these beautiful hand made beads and charms. Each bead is hand crafted with exquisite precision and detail. Lampwork beads are created by heating a glass rod and winding it into the shape of the base bead, then intricate patterns and colors can be added to the bead with nearly limitless design possibilities. Early lampwork beads were created with the flame of an oil lamp, hence then name, but today are formed with torches.

The brilliant optical qualities of the dichroic lampwork beads came to us thanks to space age technology. NASA originally developed the unique process of stacking multiple layers of metal oxides and then fusing them with glass for satellite mirrors. The radiant spectrum of colors seen in these beads is a result of different wavelengths of light either passing through or reflecting off of various layers of metal oxides. Each bead is truly an individual work of art; continuously drawing the eye to resplendent colors as light shifts upon the bead. If you enjoy these lamp beads be sure to check out our Czech lamp beads by Jablonex, the World's foremost manufacturer of glass beads.

Description: This unique vessel pendant will make a fantastic talisman and will allow you to store your favorite essential oil, magic potion, or fairy dust close to your heart.
Raku pottery's interesting rainbow like glaze effects are created through a unique firing process. The piece is sealed in a glaze with high copper content. The pottery is fired like any other ceramic, but is removed while the glaze is still molten hot. The piece is then placed in a bin of combustible materials. These ignite, causing a reaction with the copper, resulting in a colorful luster and irregular surface patterns.
Hand crafted and painted or glazed in Peru. Peruvian ceramic beads and pendants are not toys, and are not intended for food use or for children 12 or under.
