Bringing: Loose lampwork beads, finished jewelry made with her lampwork beads, glass headpins, leather bracelets with glass heart charms, and etched metal components.

Deborah Muss discovered lampworking approximately 8 years ago because she was dissatisfied with the poor quality & high cost of commercially available beads. Lampworking is the process of melting glass in a very hot flame & forming it around a mandrel to create beads and other artistic glass pieces. Consequently, all the finished jewelry she makes incorporates her handmade beads, glass head pins, and metal components.

Four years ago she began teaching this amazing craft and her teaching schedule can be found on the BeadFX class calendar. BeadFX is a bead store located in Toronto and has a well-equipped lampworking studio.

Visit her booth & you can purchase both loose lampwork beads or finished jewelry. All beads are made by her and immediately annealed in a kiln for strength & durability. Her current obsession is two-tone beads and etched beads.
