Handmade Beads -- I Make Them!


Head over to Watch Me Create to read up on my adventures in lampworking. I'm making tiny baby steps, but I'm making steps. And I'm making beads!

  4. Oh my gosh. I am not an expert but they look pretty even. And colorful. How cool is that. I stick with that Polymer stuff since I am afraid to burn my house down in case I would use a torch. BUt I am not good at it. Those are really nice. Aren't you proud?

  7. lori, what a wonderful job you're doing! it's difficult to make beads. even after six years i still don't know it all but i can say that it just takes practice and you'll get it all down in no time.

    my favorite thing to do is encase. hands down, MY FAVORITE thing ever. love love. i just love seeing all that stuff inside. if i had my way i'd tackle boro, but i'm just not there yet. maybe next year. lol

    do you listen to books while you work? that might take the edge off. that's what i do. i download books from audible.com (been a member for five years, love it) and then put in my ipod and GO to work!

    :) your beadies look awesome! :)
