Welcome To Josephine Wadman Lampwork Beads
Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Josephine Wadman and I've been making beads for over ten years now.
Most of my beads now sell on Facebook. There are a number of Lampwork groups there and I've found the most successful way for me is to hold two day showcases with auctions and some 'Make to Order' items or 'Buy it Now' with a set prices. To find out about these sales why not like or follow my business page, Josephine Wadman Designs on Facebook.
If you dont' like Facebook you can find a small range of Made to Order Designs in my Etsy shop. Just click the Etsy tab above to go straight there. I'm intending to add to this range and over Christmas or at other times between showcases I may list other sets and focal beads here.
My name is Josephine Wadman. I make glass lampwork beads and jewellery at my home studio just outside Taunton, Somerset in the Southwest of England. I've been making beads for seven years, melting glass in an open flame to create each unique bead. I work with a variety of Italian, German and American glass, often combining them with enamels, metal foils and wire.
I am a self representing artist. If you want to find handmade artisan beads on Etsy or Ebay it is always worth searching for SRA lampwork if you want to avoid having to search among the listings of mass produced and often poor quality beads.
Original artisan glass beads can give your jewellery designs a unique look. I like to mix them with other high quality materials like sterling silver, semiprecious stones and freshwater pearls. Although hand made beads may see more expensive than some others it is possible to just add a few to a piece of jewellery totally transforming your design.
