For The Kids at Beads Of Courage

Been playing hard all week at the torch and so far, the picture below is what BOC is getting from my torch time !  :)  I am pleased as punch how these beads all turned out and had a bit of a sniffle over the several that ended up in the water can.  :(  It happens.  One I was pulling off the mandrel after annealing and the end broke off !  That one was at least 3 1/2" long !  Oh well........onward and upward as it were.  I'll be back at the torch hopefully tomorrow making more of these for Beads Of Courage and I hope the kids love them.  I'm actually sculpting again too by making the little dino's !  I had forgotten how to make them so had to figure it out all over again.  lol !  

I will be making more of them that's for sure.   Just a bit time consuming right now.  Once I get back into the hang of making them, they'll move along faster.   

This second photo is of beads I made some time ago that I dug up to send to the kids.  I was REALLY into sculpting back then !  The  only one in this pile that was made recently is the whitish color one.  Not sure why it's in this photo !  lol !  

Time for me to run.  Thanks so much for stopping by !  I hope you come back again soon to see what's going on.  :)

  1. Thank you so much for what you do! I can tell you firsthand that the kids do love them. My daughter just got her first beads on Wednesday and LOVES them.
