Lampwork beads are handmade by blowing and shaping molten glass over and through a torch, using tools and hand movements to form amazing and intricate designs. This glasswork technique is alive with mesmerizing colors and fascinating details. Beads produced in this fashion make excellent focal points in necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Students will learn design basics, color selection, wire wrapping techniques, use of tools and finishing techniques - and take home a pair of new earrings for wearing or gifting! No discounts.
