Definitions:

Lampworking is a type of glasswork that uses a gas fueled torch to melt rods and tubes of clear and colored glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with a variety of tools and hand movements.

Furnace glass beads, also known as glass cane beads, are formed by fusing many small canes of glass into a larger decorated rod. Once the desired colors and designs are achieved, the glass cane is then encased in clear glass and fired in a kiln or furnace and cut into the desired sizes.

I love furnace glass-these all look like candy...mmm...now I want some sweets.. :D  :P

oh my - I'll take one of each!  these are beautiful!  and they are so awesome to look at the larger picture! wow! 
especially like the 1st and last ones! 
I want to make beads - it's the kiln that's hangin me up!  and I just keep tryin to not buy - hard to do when there are so many cool and wonderful creations just on this site! (other expensive tools on the wish list before the kiln!)

Thank you! I absolutely love every one of them, these guys are my special creations, especially because they can't be reproduced. I had about 2x the amount I posted but every time i do a show these are the 1st to go. You can check out past items on my website http://www.kaleidoscopedreamz.com/sold1.htm I sell most of them for about $18.00 which I think is very reasonable, and people don't even flinch. Last show someone purchased 4 in one shot. I have even had people stand in line to get the last pair without having seen what it looks like.  If you are interested in any/or all let me know :) Thanks again for the compliment
