bead techniques (image heavy!)

Post by Scrap Monkey on Thu 17 Sep 2015 - 9:32

So, I went on a course with the fabulous Carla di Francesco in August, and learned loads: we did some off-mandrel stuff (no hole in the middle, so technically not beads, but fabulous for understanding and manipulating glass); and obviously everybody needs a paperweight and glass beefburger Wink


I came home and started practising (these sold straight away)


and this week, using the stuff I have learned, I finally got around to buying a tutorial from my friend Jennie, first attempts last night came out okay

Very pretty. I'm not surprised those sold quickly, they are lovely.

LOL at Ruth and her pumpkin beads! I'm with Maria: the last ones are gorgeous colours, but the blue flower one in the first picture is really lovely.

What a great idea, Tina! Maybe a good idea for your SS recipient, too?

LOL yes, even those who have everything probably don't have a glass beefburger. 
Gorgeousness, loving the blues too.
Must be a fascinating process.
