It'll get there! I find I can't do them when I'm just not 'in the mood'. I have to be in a very meticulous frame of mind.

Thank you! All beads I make are out of glass, melted into a bead shape, and decorated with glass.

These look great. I especially like the color gradation on some of them, and how the final dots form a sort of spine. Intense indeed!

Those are incredible!!! You are so becoming a master!!!

I was showing John your beads and now he wants to try. I told him it was expensive so then he said "You know..I really liked Elly."

I love it when my husband likes my friends!

Aaaaaaaaaawwwwwwww.

Find a place that rents torch time! You can make as many as you can for 10$(ish) per hour and pick them up the next day!

Check out Youtube for "lampwork" videos. There are some neat ones.
