More about lampwork.. It is believed that the oldest known glass beads date back to the fifth century BC. The beads we have sourced are made in the Czech Republic, but lampworking first became widely practiced in Murano, Italy in the 14th century. Murano was the glass bead capital of the world for over 400 years. Traditional bead makers used an oil lamp to heat their glass, which is where the technique gets its name.
