GoodyBeads.com offers the leading selection of lampwork glass beads. Lampwork glass beads are made by using a torch or lamp to melt the glass. Then the molten glass is rotated around a rod or mandrel forming the base bead. Lampworkers can then add swirls, dots, flowers and many other patterns to the base creating a unique design. Our designers work directly with lampwork beads factories around the world to locate the newest trends in lampwork beads.
