Here's part of my studio space for lampwork beadmaking.   I'm still determining how I want to arrange things.  It's a labor of love. 

Below are the pretty many-colored glass rods that are used to create the custom beads and samples of the end product.

Well, today was a special day.  As some of you know, lampwork beadmaking is my latest hobby and passion.  For the last few weeks I have been putting together my own glass beadmaking studio at home. 

Today it all came together and I was able to turn on my torch and create my first bead in my home studio.  The torch uses a mix of propane and oxygen.  It was all very exciting!   Once you create a bead then is has to be fired in a kiln to anneal it.  I'll include some photos later, when the beads come out of the kiln.

And now.....  I've got some creating to do!
