Lampworking; the art of winding molten glass on to metal rods and forming them into beads.

Also known as flameworking or torchworking, the result is colourful and sculptural with beads ranging from smooth and transparent to multi faceted shapes and textures.
Once formed, the beads are annealed (heated) in a kiln and gradually cooled down to room temperature over a period of some 12 hours.
The blue white range is simply that - swirls of white and blue Italian glass, shaped into round beads and hearts. There will be some slight variations in colour, pattern and size.
