I have been beading and designing my own jewelry since childhood, and in 2003 I discovered the joys of designing my own beads in the form of lampwork and the addictive properties of molten glass. I live in Vermont with my husband (who built me this awesome site and takes great photographs!) and our dogs.

Madelyn flames all of her glass beads at her home studio using an oxygen/propane minor burner and Effetre (Morreti) and Vetrofond Italian glass. Lampworking (or Flameworking) is the technique of melting and forming rods of glass in a flame. All beads are kiln annealed. To learn more about lampworking click here to visit Wikipedia.
