Lampwork bead tutorial

There are a lot of different types of crafts and arts represented in Russian team on Etsy. Some categories are saturated enough, some are not. But the category that represent Katya from MayaHoney on Etsy is not saturated at all. I would say Katya is a unique artists so far in our team who makes lampwork.


Today, she is sharing a tutorial how to make a heart on lampwork bead.




To make the heart, you need to have some skills in lampwork making, lampwork making equipment, and you'll need dental picks.


First, you need to make a any shape base bead. Place two dots with thick stringerin white or any other color.


On the top of the white dots, place other color dots with thin stringer. She used amethyst color in this tutorial.



Heat the dots, and let them melt a little.


Then rake them with dental pick. The pick should be cold. If it's getting hot, place it in a cold water to cool it off.


And the heart is ready


Enjoy!

Lampwork fascinates me. Last summer I spent almost all my holliday in St.Ives, Conrwall, watching one artist making beautiful beads! I'd love to try this craft myself but setting up bothers me a little.

This is so beautiful! I took a single lampwork class a couple years ago and I loved the results but I don't have a talent for these. Love Katia's work, great job!
