Jo's Girls - Goddess Beads
One of my favourites to make are Goddess beads. They are lovingly hand-crafted using the ancient technique of lampworking, in my studio on the Kent coast in the UK. These are OOAK pieces, the designs of which are unique to myself. I make each bead sculpture by melting the best quality glass with a dual fuel flame-working torch. I shape and decorate using heat and gravity, and then anneal in a digitally controlled kiln to even out stresses introduced during the making process and to provide strength and durability. My beads are very durable and should last lifetimes!
Obviously though, they are made of glass and should be cared for as such.
Goddess beads were discovered thousands of years ago and were thought to represent life and fertility. The worship of Goddesses was also thought to have been the precursors to modern religion.
