Lampwork Beads
Lampwork Beads

Well that's another fab trunk show under my belt, lots of beads are on their way to their new homes and I am limbering up to get melting again.

I had to dismantle my ventilation a little while ago because the bloke in the house at the back of the shed came round to complain about the noise of the fan rattling. I now have all the bits to install new ventilation which will get the full Heath Robinson treatment but once it's in I need to get going, glass to melt, beads to make  and, well stuff, ya know?

But there is something in my way, oh look it's me, I am in my own way - again!

I always struggle to get back in the groove when I have been away for any length of time and I hate it. I hate the feelings of frustration and irritation and just not being able to make diddly squat, typically the more I think about it the worse it gets. I know as long as I go out every single day, no matter what, eventually my hands will tune in to to my head and I will find my rhythm again but it's hard, really hard. So tomorrow I go out and melt glass and keep melting glass until I make something approaching not crap. Hopefully this time I will remember not to use expensive/rare glass until I am over the hump.

Anyway, whine over, here is one I made earlier.... I was really pleased with the way this one came out.
