Warming the rod, to begin making a bead -
*No photos for the next step, as I need both hands.
Then I slowly wrap a steel mandrel with different
rods of molten colored glass, add detail colors with
the stringers. To make to earring beads below,
I form a round bead, then use a bead press
to get the interesting shape. Then, I apply transparent
dots to add a little accent to many of the beads.
A finished bead, ready to place in the annealing kiln
After 12 hours of Annealling (Cooling down in a slow rate, regulated by the Kiln)
Yes....the red/orange bead above is now cool and is yellow (below)
I love to play with many different materials and experiment with new techniques.
Currently, my favorite materials to work with are clay, glass, and metal.
