Beads - Please choose a category for details and choices

Soon after graduating from the Cleveland Institute of Art with BFA Amy Jean Nichols started making glass beads in 1988. The beads she creates are made by a technique called lampworking. Colored glass is melted at a torch then shaped onto a steel rod. Then the beads are cooled slowly in a kiln.

Amy starts with her choices in color...

Lays out her workbench...

Gets her tools ready...

Works the glass, melting and shaping it...

When her creation is complete it cools in the kiln.
