Mama bead

It was fun to make my first mama-bead, a white bead inside a hollow transparent bead, but it was not so much fun to get it off the mandrel after cooling… The small bead inside wouldn’t move at first and of course you can’t simply grab it and turn it a little if it sticks on the mandrel! That was something I hadn’t thought about while making it… PICT5476

Eventually the soaking in water and slight force applied to the outer bead got the job done without breaking both.
