Mixing Glass & Metal

Something new for me lately is the combination of metal components with my lampwork beads.

I have been exploring making my own bead caps, experimenting with different metals and different techniques, and finally developed a way to stamp and finish them that works well with my bead designs.

So far I’ve been working mainly in brass and copper as I love the rich coloring of these metals, and the way they look when antiqued.
