I am now on YouTube.

I now have a YouTube account thanks to my lovely daughter Fern and her terrific partner Simon who came to visit me in Eulo for Easter. They took a few videos of me working in my studio creating lampwork glass beads and explaining the process.

In this first video I have just demonstrated a very basic bead but you can check out some of my other lampworking tutorials for more advanced glass bead making instructions. Here

The supplies I used to make this bead include:
Blue glass rod COE 104
Mandrel coated in bead release
Creation station and lampwork torch

For a full run-down of the lampworking tools I use when making my beads check out this Video

Please comment below and let me know if you have tried making your own glass beads.

Have fun making your own homemade lampwork beads!
