I create what I like to call organic beads. Each Lampwork focal bead pendant is made with a plan to combine interesting colours that when heated may or may not react with one another. I feel great excitement when the glass blooms into interesting shapes of colour and texture. I will often add a finishing touch of pure silver or fine glass enamel before I place it in the kiln.
All of my lampwork beads are handmade by me, Lori Steel, in my glass studio in Sooke, British Columbia, Canada. All beads are kiln annealed to ensure durability and strength. The bead holes are properly cleaned and then wired with only the best of components ready for you to wear and enjoy for years to come.
