Something practical...

Not that I've had a lot of time to play with the torch of late, but I made some new beads today for something to relax with.  And, I made something relatively practical with it!  A four-strand bracelet, strung with glass seed bead separators and metal beads (didn't make the seeds or metal).



This is the first practical thing I made with my beads - small round beads for markers for my first glass rod holder.

Three weeks until classes, et al starts for us all - me with four business classes, Charlie with to LGM classes, and Ash with her Homeschooling.   I hope to squeeze in time to melt glass!

I did these today:

I was trying my hand at some new techniques (new to me) from my new book, Passing The Flame.  An awesome page and very awesome book that any newbie (such as I) can follow!! http://www.corinabeads.com
