Only recently have I tried out the striking colors. It’s not so difficult as it sounds in the books…
I did my first hollow beads, among which, one with red stringer drawing. I also raked dots into hearts. I’ll show them to you even though the hearts have come out a little uneven.
I also got a few beads shaped in the bead press… I love the lentil form, though it is still hard for me to find the right amount of glass to go into the press. All just a matter of try and error and memory.
The poked dot bead was made using the same technique as the Houdini,although this red and orange version was wrapped around a 3 mm mandrel.
