    Discover how to make glass art beads! The Ateliers d'Art de France-accredited Atelier du 5 offers free demonstrations of its skills.

    The bead-maker presents a glass rod to the flame. The molten glass, which has become pasty, is wrapped around a metal mandrel, which has been pre-soaked in a separator to prevent the hot glass from sticking to the metal. Through rotation and gravity, the hot glass bead naturally takes on a round shape.

    The shape of the bead can be round, tubular, conical or biconical, flattened, square, rectangular, or organic and random. The shape of the bead is formed either by simple rotation and gravity control of the molten glass, or by modifications made using small metal or graphite tools (moulds, pliers, tips, etc.).
