Some Things To Know About Foil Glass Beads

April 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

These days, many different types of glass beads are made using molds. A mold is a concave shaped, fireproof vessel which allows you to put the molten glass inside. When the molten glass cools, it forms the shape of the mold. Many different sizes, designs and patterns of molds are used to give glass beads their distinctive looks, shapes and sizes. Molds are generally used to create lampwork beads. Lampworking involves melting solid glass and shaping the glass using a mini or small table torch so that a uniform shaped bead is achieved.

Some of the popular designs made using this technique include the donut shape and the cone shape. These days, many people use the lampworking technique to create eye-catching glass work.

A foil glass bead is a special kind of lamp work bead that is usually made by artists and involves the technique of melting glass rods and shaping them on stainless steel mandrels using oxygen and propane powered torch. One can decide to decorate the lamp work beads and this can be done by the use of foils. The foil is typically made up of gold, silver, copper and palladium. The foil is usually ultra thin and each is individually wrapped with a sheet which is applied to the bead when carrying out the lampworking process. The end result is foil glass beads.

Foil glass beads are mostly used in the jewelry making process. They are usually composed of many varieties of colors, finishes, textures and they mostly come in a large number of patterns, designs and shapes. The most common shapes that most jewelers prefer are round, heart, oval, square, column, and rectangle and many others. The reason why these beads are preferred in jewelry making is because of their different varieties and colorful nature.

Jewelry made from these beads can be worn to any occasion. Most people are drawn to them due to their colorful and elegant appearance and thus the jewelry created also has these same properties. Glass foil beads are also the beads of choice for many bead artists as these beads help them explore their artistic creations without any limitations. This is further enhanced by the multi colored beads that create an illusion of limitlessness. Most artistic jewelry works consist of foil glass beads because they are very beautiful and can easily be matched with other types of jewelry beads. Furthermore, there is no need to spend a lot of money to buy many pieces of jewelry in various styles, and also jewelry made of foil glass beads are very affordable and suitable for numerous occasions.
