Lampworking

All my lamp work beads are made using Italian Effetre glass rods
The glass rod is initially heated using a dual fuel burner until the glass is melted. it is then wound around a preprepared coated steel mandrel to form the bead shape. Decorations in the form of dots, stripes, twirls are added with other colours and occasionally also with silver.
