    Our thanks to  Holly Cooper, International Lampwork artist , who taught for us here in Australia during April.  All the students enjoyed the classes, pouring over her incredible collection of beads  and with Holly's remarkable teaching  learnt a vast  collection of new skills. She proved to be a true artist and her trip here will always be remembered with much fondness.

    NEW IN STOCK! for lining your beads.The newly released Wide Impress Beadliner is an important addition for the creative bead artist because it provides a greater CHOICE for making WIDER DESIGN PIECES. The NEW WIDE IMPRESS Beadliner works just like the original Impress  on "normal" size beads, but has the extra advantage of working on MUCH WIDER ITEMS as well, eg silver pendants, huge beads, fused or slumped glass pieces. These are now listed under Beadling tools.

    Nancy Hamilton we love you!..just another new great video  for lampworkers to add to their list of favs. on jewellery making techniques  see here :
