Handcrafted Lampwork Beads and Jewelry
by C. Melissa Buckey

At CHG Studios, I am dedicated to my customers who appreciate handcrafted lampwork beads and jewelry. I envision, design and produce each lampwork bead individually in my home studio in Powell, Ohio. The jewelry pieces I create reflect both exceptional quality and distinctive design. My one of a kind beads are also available in sets for others to share in the creation of original jewelry pieces.

Initially my jewelry was available only at Shows & Events at fine art festivals in Ohio and nearby states. My pieces are now available for purchase at a few galleries and stores in central Ohio and in Michigan, and now, directly from my studio through this website. Please select the category from the SHOPPING links at the left.

While shopping from the website, keep in mind that the items shown are representations of the items which you will receive. Each glass bead is handmade and unique, and though the size and color of each bead will remain mostly uniform, there will be some variation from the items pictured. Also, color monitors are different and the actual colors may appear different on yours.

Additionally, the Bali-style sterling silver beads and clasps shown in the photographs are a representation of the Bali-style sterling silver beads and clasps which you will receive in your piece. The beads and clasps will all be of the same high quality, style and size, but may vary in some of the finer details.

I have been creating jewelry for almost ten years and have been lampworking for over nine years. Travels to Colorado, Kentucky, Wisconsin, and Florida have allowed me to learn extraordinary bead and jewelry making techniques from other well-respected and unique artists. Fortunately the learning experience never ends! To find out more about me or the instuctors who have shared their inspiration with me, see the About the Artist page.

In addition to featuring my handcrafted lampwork glass beads in my jewelry, my pieces also contain handcrafted sterling silver beads from Bali, India and Thailand; Swarovski™ crystals and pearls from Austria; semi-precious gemstone beads and freshwater pearls imported from various countries worldwide; ceramic beads from Greece; and the best quality toggles and findings available in sterling silver and 14k gold filled.
