more playing with glass........beads and pebbles

Have invested in a kiln to allow me to anneal my beads
so when I get better can put them into my
creativity packs and also make presents.

Playing with ideas for making pebble beads....

Glass effects are amazing

still needing lots of practice shaping but it's so much fun
and a great challenge!

Lots of lovely tops and a wee accident!

Although I did manage to dye up some lovely tops
for a customer this week.

You can see Suzanne's work here

I managed to slip in my back garden hitting the stepping
stones on the way down.....ouchy!
Luckily no breakages but lots of bruises.
Feeling quite sorry for myself.

Starting to feel a bit better today and getting ready for
a very exciting trip.
We are going to meet a felt making group in 
Howwood on Wednesday!
