I-Beads present a great range of glass beads fashioned in a torch flame by a process called “lampworking”.
In our continued efforts to offer you the best range of glass beads
, we are adding beautiful lamp worked glass beads to our collection. Individually handcrafted by highly skilled glassblowers, these beads are fashioned in a torch flame by a process called “lampworking”. Unlike most beads that are made from ordinary or “soft” glass, these beads are created from "hard" or borosilicate glass
. Borosilicate glass is worked at much higher temperatures than ordinary glass and then kiln annealed at over 500° Celsius, which makes for a stronger more durable product. The higher temperatures are also responsible for the rich natural colours which are absolutely fantastic to work with to create bright spring designs. As Easter approaches we are happy to give you a special Easter gift - top up your shopping basket to £25 or above and get our special Flower Easter Egg glass bead
as a free gift* - available while stock lasts only.
