Glass Beads: Wearable Art for Young Artists

Maria Aroche

Working glass on a torch is a wonderful introduction to the qualities of glass; color, light and fluidity. Students, with an eye on safety, will learn the basic skills of flame-working to melt colorful glass rods into beads. Students will learn to shape the molten glass into a range of bead forms and embellish them with a variety of decorative techniques, including dots, lines, swirls, twists and more. Each student will make a range of colorful handmade beads, which they will assemble into their own individual wearable art, such as bracelets, necklaces etc.
