New torch – new beads

Posted on Updated on

I had to move my studio and on this occasion I finally switched to a Minor torch that runs on propane and oxygen. The flame of my new beauty is beautifully hot and well defined. Plus it’s super silent compared to the Hothead.

Curious to see my new “studio”? I have in fact taken over a corner of the garage – unfortunately still without a proper ventilation. It is still not the ultimate place to be working at, but it will have to do for the time being.

The MINOR – the oxygen wasn’t yet connected to my beauty on this picture, as I see only now…

The first beads that came off the mandrel using this torch were slightly experimental, the idea having come to me in a dream:
