This is my empire, where I
make the jewelry. The tools I need for my work are not many. I use a
blowtorch, propane gas, oxigen and glass rods. The glass I use comes
from the Czech Republic and is known as “Ornela”. I also
use rods of fine metal, separation cream, special glass cooling
granules and a range of modeling tools. I use the blowtorch to melt the
glass. When the glass is hot and has the consistency of honey, I wrap
it on the metal rod.
Glass comes in many different colours and can be mixed. When the
glass is soft I make shapes round, square, flat, anything is possible.
When I am satisfied with the shape of a bead, I cool it in the cooling granules.
After a while I can remove the rod and Voila! I have produced a
hand made bead.
This is my procedure for making jewelry. I like to mix my beads
with others beads and precious stones. Sometimes silver or
gold plate, also copper. It isn’t necessary to say much more
about this. But look for yourself after in my gallery.
