About the Bead: “This gecko bead was inspired as I was hiking the Utah trails and watching the little lizards as they scurried to get out of our way. This made me smile and I knew I had to capture this memory in the form of a glass bead.” – Roger Child, Bead Artist
About the Artist: Roger Child has been a full time lampwork bead maker for 20 years. He discovered the magical world of lampworking glass during the summer of 1998 and instantly fell in love with working hot glass in the flame of a torch. Inspired by nature and fantasy, he hand-makes his glass beads, one at a time, using lampworking techniques.
