Lampwork Bead Making is a type of glasswork in which a torch melts glass rods. Once the glass is molten, it is shaped with hand movements and formed with hand tools, and intricate decorations are added for detail. It is also known as flameworking or torchworking, as the modern practice no longer uses oil-fueled lamps. Although the lack of a precise definition for lampworking makes it challenging to determine when flameworking was first developed, the earliest verifiable lampworked glass is probably a collection of beads thought to date to the fifth century BC.
Krissy uses various types of lampwork glass, including Effetre, Moretti, Lauscha, and Vetrafond. Each bead is immediately placed into a digitally controlled kiln for annealing, soaking, and gradual cooling overnight to ensure the quality and durability of the lampwork beads she creates.
