Welcome to my wonderful world of handmade lampwork beads and handcrafted jewellery .

I enjoy making handmade beads that are not mass produced and have that original feel and look. As my beads are not mass produced not every bead is the same and can vary ever so slightly . This is why I feel excitement each time I melt glass as each time is like the first time. Any imperfections are stated in my descriptions so buyer please be aware .

Enjoy looking at my beads.
It is our imagination that lets us create these wonderful designs.

New Cabs oh happy days

A quick post as I have had to go out and get a " proper " job !!!!!

The less said about that the better as it is not about beads ...

Anyway last Sunday I made Cabochon's with Manda's Tut .

So here is my first attempt. I am not keen on using their Mandrel so I am doing it freehand using a screw and nut mandrel from Little Castle Designs , but that is just what I prefer . Everybody is different so if you can, try both types and see what works for you. 

These other beads are just playtime beads ...
