Bell Flowers Headpins, March 28, 2014

I learned to make bell flowers headpins yesterday. It's very small, only 12 mm.
Another new learning of putting glass directly into Nickel Silver wire. Very fun and I'm sure I'll make a lot more of these.

New GTT Bobcat Torch, Mar25,14

I've been using a fake HotHead torch from India for a year. It was a great start in learning lampworking and it only cost $15.00. I want to learn more about lampworking and work in a lot of details and my Hothead won't do it for me. I was supported my a friend and got a new GTT Bobcat torch which uses dual fuel (Oxycon, which is being built) and propane.  Ofcourse I  picked custom color of wild sparkle pink :)
I can't wait for another 3 weeks or so until my Oxycon is done and starting a new journey of  learning lampworking more.

Caterpillars, Mar16,14

I tried making caterpillars from Soda Lime Times yesterday. It was fun making them and I plan to make more. But here they are from yesterday's batch. I think I should make their heads bigger :)

Pink Boot, Mar 11, 2014

I wear boots everyday to work and on weekends almost 9  months of the year (except Summer).
I love boots :)  So I tried to torch a boot bead last night. I actually  made 2 boots (black and pink), but the black one didn't turn out so good because it was my first bead. I do love my pink one though.
Looking forward to do more practicing making boots.

Mar 9, 2014 Silly Monsters and Bunny Rabbit beads

I wanted to do something fun making beads yesterday and decided to make "silly monsters" beads and white bunny rabbit bead. It was really fun doing it although kind of hard to put all the "eye and lips" into one small beads. But, it was my first time and I'll practice more.
The bunny didn't turn out so bad although it was also my first time.

Sparkly Beads, Mar1,14

We're invited to celebrate my extended family (my big Sister)'s birthday party tonight.
So, I made few sparkly beads using gold stone (aventurine) with transparent glass and encased it with clear.
I made several beads just for fun. Ofcourse, I made pinks also maybe for me.
I love sparkles :)
