Back to the torch and getting ready for the fall shows
Back to teaching.
This weekend there was an awesome group of students in the Beadmaking One class. Even though the temperatures are still hanging in the 90’s the studio wasn’t to hot and everyone made a bunch of beads.
I spent a pleasant Sunday with Nicole of Glass Touch in the studio. I was made beads for a necklace. This style of necklace starts with some special cane I make and pull.
I use it to make the disk beads and the little spacers. Then there is a really long focal bead using all the colors of the canes. I really like the series and this style of necklace.
Once the beads are made they go through a series of grits over several days sometimes even weeks to achieve a satin finish.
