First attempts

At the end of June I went on a weekend course to learn lampworking (making glass beads), it was absolutely brilliant. Diana East and Sally Carver (both well known and excellent bead artists) were teaching the workshop and imparted loads of knowledge, tips and techniques. They made it look sooo easy tho!

Here are my attempts! This is the very first bead I made...

and here are the rest of the beads I made over the weekend...

I'm really pleased with my first attempts and can't wait to get myself set up with a little studio and get melting some glass!


  1. Beautiful beads! I wanna go!! Ha! Lovely work, hope you get your studio! Do let me know if you start selling your beads ;)

  2. they look beautiful, I'd love to have a go at making lampwork glass beads, lucky you to have a proper workshop!
