FAQ's

What is flamework glass?
Flameworking (also called lampworking) differs from traditional glass blowing since a torch is used to melt the glass instead of a furnace.

Using a surface mix torch of oxygen + propane, I will melt the glass in 1,800-2,000 degree flame and create a bead or cabochon on a stainless steel mandrel. The mandrel is pre-dipped in a ceramic release to prevent the glass from permanently sticking to the metal.

Next, the finished glass piece is placed in a temperature controlled kiln to slowly cool down the glass, preventing any stress fracture.

 Are those real plants?
Yes! Each silver botanical element is casted in sterling silver and used to be REAL plants. I've carefully sourced from a fellow maker who does an AMAZING job.

Where do you get your stones?
I carefully source all my stones as well. I'm very particular about the chosen stones and only offer the best quality as possible. I would never sell a piece that I wouldn't wear myself.
