Lampwork Beads

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.
