Glassmaking is believed to have begun about 5,000 years ago in the Middle East, perhaps in Mesopotamia. Some think glass was discovered as a by-product of making metal which had originated in an earlier millennium. The earliest glass objects were apparently beads. Since then the art of making beads has been perfected. The contemporary lampwork glass bead pictured above was created by Rose. You can see more of her glass beads in her web site gallery at www.beadshaper.com/gallery
