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. :)
