Handcrafted, flameworked glass beads and jewellery


Based on in the ancient European tradition of lampworking, Inge Chappell makes contemporary flameworked glass beads and jewellery from her home studio in Puhoi.


Inge has a background in marketing communications but her interest in jewellery created a desire for her to learn glass bead making in 2009 from some of the greatest names in the industry.


Since then, Inge has exhibited her glass work throughout New Zealand and has sold work to international tourists, visiting dignitaries and royals as well as her supportive customers who she says “soon become addicted” and keep buying her jewellery again and again.


Inge says of her work “Flameworking is an exciting and alluring art form which has endless possibilities for expression with colour, form and decoration”.

Opening hours

The Kleurglass studio and showroom is open by appointment and glass demonstrations can also be arranged.
