Raida Disbrow is a Lampwork (glass) artist, ceramic artist, jewelry designer and owner of Havana Beads. Fifteen years ago Raida began making one-of-a-kind artisan jewelry creations. In her search for unique beads she discovered the art of Lampworking.

Lampworking is an art form which became widely practiced in Murano, Italy in the 14th century. Lampworking is the art of melting glass rods with a torch and creating on a steel mandrel small works of art. These pieces are decorated with thinner stringer pieces of glass and when finished annealed in a kiln for strength and durability.
