First beads of 2009. 123 viewsMade January 4th 2009...

Needed to make something but didn't know what, so I went trolling through pics for inspiration. Found these and decided to see if I could figure them out.

Inspiration thanks for the birds goes to Jennifer Geldard. The owl is my own creation.

Raised Florals over Rubino158 viewsStarted out with a pink and lavender lampwork bead with silver leaf for the Fairy Fondue bead swap, which I then decided to encase with Rubino.

October 2003 - Beads made at home.168 viewsBefore I left Kathryns class, I made sure that I bought everything I would need to be able to set myself up to make beads once I got home. A Hothead torch, some glass, some tools, eye wear etc... Another thing I learned... You can never have too much glass...Dec 12, 2005
3 day Advanced Class beads - With text~0.JPG
October 2003 - Beads from 3 day Advanced Beadmaking Class Oct 03.152 viewsA word of warning... Glass Beadmaking is highly addictive...!

I was only going to attend Kathryns beginners class, but once I got the hang of the melting glass and winding it onto mandrels to make pretty beads thing, I just had to sign up for her advanced class... Fortunately, I have a wonderful hubby who didn't mind me spending way more than we had originally planned...

These beads are from the 3 day Advanced class that followed.

What fun!!! The class was organised through Albion Glass in Brisbane and our teacher was Kathryn Wardill. The beads cover what we learnt during the five days starting from the little slugs on the left...Dec 12, 2005
