What is Lampworking
Lampworking is a type of glasswork where a torch is primarly used to melt the glass. The glass is heated until molten, wound around a specialy coated steel mandrel, forming the base bead.
Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by shaping with tools and hand movements. Lampworking is a very carming and enjoyable way of creating your own unique beads
