Dear Anne,

My intent was not scold you, but rather to help you understand glass technology and it's terms better. And to get it that by your saying an ancient bead was "lamp worked" that this would be an anachronism (to say nothing of being an impossibility). Furnace-wound beads and lamp-wound beads have certain characteristics in-common. But they also have distinctions that make it possible to tell them apart. And the correct use of a term or name makes your thoughts more clear and in-keeping with actual history.

And yes—popular "news reports" frequently rely on sensationalism to get attention. But by doing that they often get it wrong, and say silly stuff.

Be well. Jamey
