Been Away too Long!

But I'm back now. Seems like the summer got away from me. Did a couple of local festivals and sold some jewelry and beads. Also sat up the Blue Lagoon Bead booth at the local Farmer's Market and that's always alot of fun.

I've been playing with some different tutorials and learning new techniqes. One of my favorites is a tutorial by Sarah Hornik on using Rubino D'Oro glass. Here's the first bead I made following the tutorial:

It's like stepping back to the 60's Flower Power days! I've always burned my rubino in the past but Sarah's tutorial has been hugely helpful as I learn to control the heat and where I hold my glass. I'll be making more flower power beads!
