This morning, when all beads are annealed, I tried to take them off the mandrels. Out of 5 beads, 3 of them shattered when I pulled them off. I found out that I forgot to put the tip of the mandrels on the flame so the bead release didn't crumbled. :( It's ok. It's part of learning curve.
So, here they are: 1 pink and 1 purple pastel beads.
