A Personal Vision of Your Passion for Lampwork Beads
As a maker, when you think about lampworking, what stirs your soul and ignites your passion? Is it a unique color combination? Perhaps a specific form or textural element? Maybe a captivating style or special process you use? Artists are encouraged to challenge themselves and submit pendant pieces that embody their personal voice — expressions that highlight the infinite possibilities in contemporary glass beadmaking and radiate from within their work . Whether you are a novice beadmaker or have years of experience, we invite you to create your favorite design and show us what ignites your lamp work bead passion!
