Handmade glass beads and jewellery. See glass bead making demonstrations. Unique necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more.

Each bead is made individually, by hand, by melting glass in a flame around a mandrel. The average bead takes about 20 minutes to make and must rest in a kiln overnight to reduce stress and make the bead strong.
The ‘birth’ of a bead takes about 24 hours.
