Puffafish Lampwork Beads and Jewellery
Art Glass Beads by Rachel Bishop
Puffafish Lampwork was born in 2007 after a need to have beautifully handcrafted and different beads to use in my own jewellery designs that were not mass produced and poorly made. I never fail to be inspired by the endless colours of glass and the continual trial and error of experimenting. There is something here for all tastes and budgets. Jewellery making should be fun, satisfying and leave you feeling happy...and beautiful jewellery should start with beautiful beads.
I work from my home studio in Valley Truckle in Cornwall nestled between the Atlantic Sea and Bodmin Moor. My beads are worked in a hot flame and are put straight into a hot kiln to anneal properly to ensure longevity and strength. I love making beads...it is soothing to my mind and good for my overall well-being, just being lost in the process and not having to think of anything else.
I hope you enjoy creating with Puffafish Lampwork beads as much as I have enjoyed making them!
