Long Coloured Glass rods in opaque or transparent are melted in the flame and wound onto a mandrel (Metal Rod) by hand creating a bead like shape of molten glass. Techniques are then used to create swirls, dots, and magical thing begin to develop. There are many different tools used in Flameworking  /Lampworking, usually made of stainless steel or graphite.

By annealing the glass beads, they are guaranteed to remain as hard as rocks. When a glass bead is finished, the hot bead (while still on the mandrel) is placed in a kiln heated at 960°F. The annealing process releases the stress from the glass and slowly cools
the beads down to room temperature. Cooling the glass beads too quickly causes them to crack.
