Dean's beads. Dean and I are taking a 3 session
glass beadmaking. We have one more left next
Sunday night. Dean likes making glass beads.
His beads are simple and he is good for the first
time. You rotate a non stick pencil stainless rod
as you wrap hot licorice like glass onto the rod.
It is very difficult to form a perfect sphere
between heat and gravity.Last night Dean made 8 beads and I made 2 beads.
One of my bead cracked when I tried to make dots
for the flower petals. We learned how to twist 2
colors of glass rods.
This morning my large green/purple transparent
bead cracked. It was due to cooling too fast. Oh,
well ! Next week we will learn to use enamel
