Wonderful Works of Glass


Photo Source: stylehive.com.

Glass is a unique component to use in jewelry and craft ideas. Its beauty is matched by its fragile nature, making it a special component often reserved for delicate designs. The truth is that we shouldn’t be afraid to explore new ideas with glass. Glass beads and pendants open up new opportunities for us to play with color, shape and style. The necklace above made from Murano glass is a great example of how designers are using glass as a new fashion. The one below is made from hand-blown glass, a special technique of blowing into a pipe to expand the soft glass and shaping it before it hardens. Get inspired to offer your ideas a new approach by browsing our glass bead collection to create one-of-a-kind designs. Almost all glass beads are made by hand, making each individual bead unique from the rest—a guarantee your ideas will be different from everyone else’s.

    An AB finish on those would be really cool. It’d make them look like real soap bubbles.

      Hi Peggy

      We don’t carry the glass pictured here, but some of the lampwork beads we carry are lovely and come in all sorts of colors. You may like the roundels, especially our selection from Unicorne Beads that feature fun bubbles inside each bead.

    Wow, what fun…will make beautiful tree ornaments. Would love to have a huge group of them handing near a light source. Fun for jewelry too, but my imagination went elsewhere!

    I love these. They look like bubbles. They could look good with a mermaid costume.

      They do! The bubble necklace would be a wonderful accessory for a mermaid costume.
