Lampwork Beads By Patricia Scoggins

First of all, thanks so much for coming by and visiting my little gallery!

Then a little about me. What started as just making my own beads for my own jewelry designs has evolved into so much more. My obsession with glass has completely taken over. That's probably an understatement as far is my husband is concerned but I find myself even dreaming about beads. Glass is a wonderful medium and it allows me to express myself artistically like no other medium has. I live to develop my own recognizable style. I like to think that each piece, no matter how small, is an original piece of art.

Bead Sets

Bead Sets

I love making sets. I do make pressed sets and some free hand shapes. Presses allow me to concentrate on the effects of different glasses while making consistant sized beads that jewelry artists prefer. And you know what? I find using presses is not always the easiest thing to do.

Again, simpler is better. I like natural bone, wood and leather for that organic look.

Cold-worked and Faceted Beads

Cold-worked and Faceted Beads

These beads are lampworked, annealed and then cold-worked with a lapidary grinder (flat lapped) for a faceted look. I like to work my transparents down to a shiny glass finish so that the tiny imperfections of the glass show and become part of the natural design. I leave my opaques a little rougher for a more organic look. Fine silver in either foil or wire form play a major part in my beads.

Dragon Claws

Dragon Claws

I don't do many sculptural beads but these were really fun to make. Etched for that organic look and lots of fine silver accents I think give these a mystical feel. These are listed on Ebay right now.

Glass Pendants

Glass Pendants

Making jewelry is definitely not new for me but making jewelry from my own lampwork beads is. I prefer something simple on sterling silver to let the beads stand on their own. I'm a big fan of hand dyed silk cords. They are simple yet artfully display the pendants.

Large Holed Focals

Large Holed Focals

I can't get enough of making these. These are the same beads I normally start out with to make my faceted cold-worked focals. Made on a large hollow mandrel they are great for string on leather or hand-dyed silk cords. You can see an example on my Pendants page. I love a mix of opaques and transparents and decorated with fine silver foil. They have a great organic look.

Organic Glass Bead Sets

Organic Glass Bead Sets

The bulk of my work is in sets and some of my very favorites are my organic beads. I love to picture what finished jewelry pieces could be made from my sets. I try to include enough beads to make one large dramatic piece or several pieces using just one bead as a focal. The possibilities are endless.

I love this new glass. It reduces to a great metallic sheen with gorgeous colors of blues, greens and purples.

Recycled Art Glass

Recycled Art Glass

Recycled glass gets a new life in this beautiful set of handmade lampwork beads! A lampwork group I belong to was approached by a group that recycle old broken glass pieces in to usable glass called frit. We were lucky to get some samples and these are my first beads created with that recycled glass. I have topped Moretti copper green with the frit and loads of fine silver foil to create these wonderful beads. I love the idea of creating new art with pieces of recycled old art! For sale now on CalamitysClan Ebay!

Bring back the days of the hippies, or maybe not. This style of bead just suits me. Add a little Hill Tribe Silver and it's a finished piece. God I love raku!

Terran Leaves

Terran Leaves

Just playing around a little with Terra glass. I was getting some great fall like colors this time on a base of ivory so I decided to make a few more fall sculptural leaves. Damn this glass is expensive but I can't stop myself from buying it.
