Lampwork Art Glass Beads made from the Finest Italian Glass
A warm welcome to Mango Beads – the home of individually designed art glass beads and lampwork jewellery, made by myself, Amanda Muddimer. I create beads that are both exclusive and very collectible, made from the very finest Italian soft glass. I hope that some of the love and enjoyment that was involved in creating the beads comes across throughout the pages in my website.
A Superior Range of Tools and Supplies.
Mango Beads partner David Knight (BA Ceramics and Glass ) designs quality mandrels and lampwork tools for beadmakers. All of the tools and supplies stocked by Mango Beads are used by Amanda and David in their own workshop to create the high standard of product and finish that the Mango Beads reputation is built on.
Studio Hire and Bead Making Tuition
Our Glass Workshop and Studio in Barnstaple is fully equipped with 10 lampwork torches, Oxygen concentrators, glass and tools to create a productive and inspiring workplace. The studio is available to hire on Wednesday evening and on some Saturdays to give fellow bead makers the space, freedom and facilities to practice their craft – click here for more information about booking Studio Hire.
We also offer professional bead making tuition and host classes with visiting glass tutors, based both in the UK and internationally. The lampworking courses cater for all levels of ability, from starter tuition for the complete beginner to expert classes and courses for the advanced bead maker. We love to see the Studio come alive with the flames of the growing bead making community and invite you to come and join us. New courses are being added all the time so please keep an eye on our Online Diary for the latest lampwork classes, and use the booking system below to book online.
