Wood Beads Knowledge

Wood beads can be made out of any type of wood. These are a popular type of natural jewelry making beads. They come in many different sizes, styles and shapes. Most of the time wood beads will remain in their natural finish, with just a sealer on them to make them shiny. However, they can come in all sorts of colors, too.
Since wood beads are made from a natural product, adding man made dyes can sometimes defeat the purpose of these natural beads. Most wood beads are very light in weight. A lot of the wood beads you will find will be round, but there are some out there with designs carved into them. You can choose from natural, untreated finishes, sealed natural finishes, natural dye colors, and man made dye colors.
Wood jewelry making beads range in price depending on the type of woods they are made from. The rarer the wood, the more expensive the bead. Sometimes wood beads can be a little difficult to find, and because they are natural, the grains of wood and look of the beads can vary. I use wood beads in a lot of my Native American Crafts.

The symbolism in Tibetan jewelry

Tibetan jewelry is fashion item in jewelry world, and fashion ladies prefer to wear Tibetan jewelry pieces. Often, Tibetan jewelry are given special symbolisms, so when choosing Tibetan jewelry, first check out these symbolisms.
(1)Om. The om symbol is the sound of the universe. It has great significance to Buddhists and Hindus. A Tibetan pendant with the om symbol is shown to the right.

Dual fish: spiritual abundance
Interwoven knot: representing the eternity of Lord Buddha’s teachings
Lotus flower: transformation of life into pure spirit
Treasure bowl: symbolizes spiritual jewels
Umbrella: protection from the corruption of personal desire
Victory Emblem: a banner representing spiritual attainment

How lampwork beads are made?

Lampwork beads are handmade and are formed by heating glass with a blowtorch and then working it into many different bead shapes. The colors and styles of lampwork beads vary widely, but the look of a lampwork bead is usually glossy and ornate. The lampwork technique is also used to make glass ornaments and is based on ancient Italian and French glass making methods.
Creating lampwork beads involves heating glass rods with a blowtorch until they become rope-like. A rope of glass is then wrapped around a clay-coated metal pole. The special clay mixture allows finished beads to be easily removed. After the initial strand of melted glass is placed on the clay pole, more melted glass is added to the original piece. This is where bead making creativity comes in because the design possibilities for creating many different shapes and patterns of lampwork beads are endless.
For example, if tiny bits of melted glass are added to the first piece, a spotted look is created. If a pointed tool is used on the spots, designs such as tiny flowers can be made. Unique bead shapes and textures can be formed by blowing on the hot glass or by creating dents with a glass working tool.
Some lampwork bead artists add bits of metal to the glass beads, while others stretch the melted glass to form ears for whimsical animal bead shapes or to create formations such as stars and suns. Creating lampwork beads takes experimentation as well as practice since sometimes the hot glass may crack or break. Adding transparent glass on top of intricate, colored designs on the beads can create a beautiful effect that looks similar to thick, clear glass on top of a piece of art or a photograph.
The designs on many lampwork beads are so detailed that it’s possible to see every tiny stamen in the middle of each small flower. The colors used on a lampwork bead vary from elegant neutrals to candy brights to delicate pastels. Lampwork beads can be used to create many different kinds of bracelets, earrings, hair accessories, rings and necklaces. A large lampwork bead pendant can be so striking and artistic in appearance that it may need only a simple metal choker to make a dramatic finished necklace.

Just like gemstone beads, lampwork beads have been involved in jewelry for a long time. As it was made by glass, so sometimes with the continuous improvement of design technique, lampwork beads become more beautiful and attractive. I also got inspired by the flat round red lampwork beads with irregular golden shimmering powder. Combined with red crystal beads and tibetan silver beads, I worked out my two stands red fire bracelet. Let’s have a look at it!
