Alright I admit it, I'm a lampwork addict. I had good intentions of making more jewelry yesterday but I really really felt like making beads. Good news is my new kiln will be fixed but, the bad news is, not for another week so I got the old kiln out and hooked it up yesterday. It was a cool day and it was perfect - so perfect that I made 42 beads!!!!
Now if you were counting the beads I posted in the photos you have noticed there are not 42 shown. The 3 beads I didn't show were super ugly and they were a mystery glass I was just trying to figure out what it was, what it does in the flame, etc. They looked like cement no matter what I did with them so I left them out of the blog. I'll probably try the glass with some silvered frit and see if I can get any type of reaction and if no luck there I will turn them into punties.
