WENATCHEE — Jessica Jones’ passion for lampwork beads began with a Christmas gift she received 10 years ago. The perfect Christmas gift, Jones might say today. One that over a decade has boiled and bubbled and been fashioned into a gleaming craft and bright prospect for a home business. Jones, 37, received a glass bead-making hobby kit from her husband, Dusty, in 2000. The kit was something for her and the couple’s three children to play with at first. Using the kit’s directions, a propane torch and quarter-inch rods of colored glass, they learned to make their own glass beads and one-of-a-kind jewelry.
