lampworked bead

Frosted Swirls, now up in my shop.  My lampwork beads and design.  

I really love this piece–I think it looks terribly elegant and professional.  I made my sister in law a very similar necklace for Christmas, and she tells me that it attracted attention at a lobbying banquet she recently attended.

Dragon bookmarks by Ferals Trumpet

Inspired by the Yorkshire legend of the Dragon of Loschy Wood. Like so many stories of great wurms, this one most likely alludes to earth energies whose presence is almost lost to us. The arch of the dragon’s neck hooks elegantly around the spine of your book and resembles the dragon head on the bow of a Viking ship. 

A black dragon egg of carved, smoked jade, a green agate Dragon Egg or lampwork heart. The heart is a lampwork bead, wrapped in filigree and adorned with Swarovoski crystals. 

Stop what you’re doing, and imagine the following with me:

  • Clear taking a class on how to make lampwork glass beads.
  • Mink seeing how much Clear loves it and buying lampworking supplies so Clear can make beads at home.
  • Clear’s first lumpy grey bead getting a place of honor on a shelf, because Clear is still really proud of it even after he learns to make really complex and beautiful beads.
  • Clear trying over and over to make a jellyfish bead, and having trouble because the tentacle are so thin and delicate that they keep breaking off, which makes it all the more special when he actually manages it.
  • Mink including the beads Clear makes for him in his jewelry.  They aren’t exactly traditional, but he likes the ones he made with Clear’s beads most of all.

You may now continue whatever you were doing before.
