torch a glass rod is heated to a molten state and then
wrapped around a steel mandrel. By rotating the mandrel gravity forms a round bead. Surface decoration is then applied using coloured glass. When the bead is completed it is put in a kiln to anneal – this is an essential part of
the process to make the bead strong and durable. Each bead is unique and a work of art in its own right.
