About half way through my two and a half years of metalworking classes, I took a 2-day lampwork and fusing workshop. I loved making glass beads, the color combinations are infinite and the variety of glass available (frit, stringers, rod, sheet) gives you a very wide field for experimentation. But, after making the first boxful of beads, you go: “Hmm… what do I do with them?”

The natural progression was to use my lampwork beads on my metalwork jewelry. As I worked on a couple of projects, it occurred to me that there were a lot of people out there like me.

METALWORK FOR YOUR LAMPWORK I is the first Book of this Series conceived with the idea of offering lampworkers, beaders and wire workers an alternative way of incorporating their beads onto one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces using metalworking techniques.

It will teach you how to make a fully handmade piece of jewelry and say goodbye to commercial findings.

Although the projects are made with lampwork beads, many of them have photos of the same project using other beads (wood, coral, bone and semi-precious stones).
