Hi! I have been lurking on craftser for a while and I am always so inspired by what I find here. I wanted to show everyone some pics of the boro beads I make. I have been lampworking since 2003 and am self taught. So here are some pics, please let me know what you think of ask me any questions you might have.


a set of two matching beads. for earrings


a pendant


a set of yellow opal colored flower tab shaped beads, I love how this set turned out


slightly larger sized focal bead.


thanks for looking!!!

that first set of beads makes my heart go pitter patter, absolutely beautiful work.  Glass is the one thing the hubby forbids me to do (accident prone and he has visions of ER visits and glass exploding)

I've wanted to learn lampwork for a long time now, but I am too chicken to try it!

Your work is absolutely beautiful!  I especially love the flowers.  I may have to wist them Cheesy
