Glass Beadmaking

About Glass Bead Making

Lampwork bead artists create beads using a torch powered with oxygen and propane or natural gas. Janice is a glass beadmaker who uses her twenty-six years of lampworking experience to create glass beads and sculptures using her torch.  She melts colorful glass rods from Italy to create her miniatures works of art.  Beads are made one at a time, using various sculpting tools which move the molten glass into the desired shapes.

Janice is known for her ancient mask and vessel beads, Handmade glass beads come in many styles, as unique as the artists who create them.
