Lampwork beads!

You've asked for it! Many, many times in fact. The thing is, we couldn't really figure out a cost effective way to post our one of a kind lampwork beads on our website. Plus, our website allows you to edit the quantities. You want to change the number of lobster claws from 5 to 500? No problem. However, that doesn't work so well with one of a kind items :-)

We have a ton of lampwork beads in our retail store by these artists and more!

I have scooped a small selection of my favourite lampwork beads out of the store. Below you'll find a photo, a short description, and the artist and price information on each bead. If you want it, be the first to send an email to jennifer@beadfx.com letting me know which one you want. If you want to add it to an order, let me know. Otherwise, the easiest way to pay will be via Paypal. I'll send you a Paypal invoice for the cost of the bead, plus shipping and any applicable taxes for you Canadians.

My hope is that this will be a regular weekly feature on the blog!

First up is a gorgeous floral bicone made by Dwyn Tomlinson.
58x15mm - It's a biggie! - Code is lampwork1 - $25.00


Next up we have a set of three light cranberry nuggets by Erin Maloney of AirWynn Glass Designs. Each bead is about 18mm round. The set of three sells for $36.00. Sold - Thank you!


Ethereal earthy blues and browns from Elly Peters. 35x30mm - Sold Thank you! - Code: lampwork3


A large tab focal from Erin Maloney of Airwynn Glass Designs. This one is particularly interesting in that it's flat on one side, and it has a clear core. The dichro design goes right through the bead! The bead measures 38mm in diameter - $36.00 - Code: lampwork4


One more from Erin - A large seafoam green chunky tab bead. the pic below is quite light, and I had a hard time capturing the colour. It's more green than blue. you don't want this bead...really you don't! ;-) I've had my eye on this one for a while, but I suppose I'll offer it up here first before I have to buy it myself...

38mm in diameter - $40.00 - code: lampwork5


We have a chubby little bicone from Andria Knowles-Muller. This one features twisties in pale grey blue/green/white. 27x18mm - $16.00 - Code: lampwork6

I hope you will continue with this section, since so very many of us live far, far away from your store.

We will! This week just didn't happen, just a few too many things going on at once for me to pull it off!
