Summer Floral Beads

Floral focal lampwork beads

 

It’s been super hot this week and I responded by making more beads than I have made all year. I heard the call of inspiration and headed shedwards to melt some glass and make some beads. Not just any beads either, large floral focal beads that take over 2 hours each. Sandwiched between the 510 C degree kiln and the flaming torch, the heat in my tiny workshop soared to new levels of scorchio, it was soggy work but it was worth it.

Next week I will be making these into pendants. Be sure to sign up for my mailing list if you would like to get your hands on one of these
