I Can Do This! TikiBead Style!

Pam shares her love of lampworking and how it all began.
She also gives great tips on how to get started if you are interested.

I started lampworking about three years ago after seeing some glass beads in a bead magazine. They were so beautiful and unique, I just had to find out more about them. I did alot of research on the internet and thought, "I can do this!"
So I found a local glass store and took lessons.

Here are some of Pam's beautiful TikiBead pieces.
It isn't easy... Lampworking involves so much practice! But there is so much you can do. So many shapes, so many colors. You can make beads with silver, or gold, or sparkling dichroics. Bead presses come in so many shapes... hearts, squares, lentils, barrels.

Sometimes I spend 15 minutes before I start work just trying to decide what I want to do that day. Etsy is the perfect place to sell beads, because the buyers are so friendly and encouraging. I've made many friends through my etsy shop, and received and given help to other lampworkers. To anyone who has lots of time and even more patience, lampworking is so rewarding.
