heartEach bead is handmade by me in my studio, and all beads are made-to-order, so they will look like the beads pictured, but with unique variations for a set just for you! All are kiln annealed for strength and durability. Turn around is usually 3-7 business days from order to shipping day. Beads are made from soda-lime glass, holes on most lampwork are 3/32", but please check each listing, as some are 1/16", others 5mm or larger. Just click on an image to see a larger view and feel free to email me with any questions. Shipping is $3.00 for any sized order, for both US and International customers.

Thank you for supporting American artisans!
