My name is Lara Lutrick and I have been making lampwork beads since 1997. While at a local arts and crafts fair, I saw and bought my first true artisan lampwork bead. The artist told me that there were classes at my local bead store. I took the class and was immediately hooked. Lampworking is my passion; it feeds my soul and my need to create.

This photo is my current favorite. This is an organic bead that uses glass with silver infused within it (Gaia) that reacts with the base of ivory to form a fun pattern around the green. This is my best example of my "Dragon Tears" series.

Great bead, Lara! I've never tried Gaia that way. It looks really cool.
