This is what I managed to get over the weekend. I am trying to make sets for jewellery at the moment, hence lots of the same.
I am a bit out of practise, having more recently been doing one of a kind and much bigger focal beads.
I want to make some coppery/bronze coloured beads next, but am not too sure how to get the colours I would like. Some experimentation ahead I think.

Had a busy glassy weekend.
Had a two day class with Di East (at her studio), substituting for Sarah Hornik, so learnt lots about colour combinations. Then stayed for a third day as Di had an open studio, with lots of vendors, and like minded glassy people. How could I say no to shopping for glass related things. And yes, before you ask, I did buy glass. I bought a starter kit of Lauscha. So thats a new one for the collection. And then in the raffle I won a bundle of gaffer glass, which is COE 96, but thats ok as I have a piece of dichro that is 96, so some experimental combinations coming up. However, my work space is a mess as I was busy completing the exchage beads, then went away. So no torching til that is sorted.
Will try and post some pics soon, showing what I got up to.
