No I didn't fall off the face of the earth. Although it may have seemed like it.
Every once in a while a passion or new technique will take hold of me. I immerse myself in it. I have to go with it until I feel it in every pore of my body. Here are some of my Cold Worked Glass Beads.
So coldworking had become my new obsession. I have traveled all over the country teaching my class and adding on coldworking. I even taught a week long class at Pittsburgh Glass, where their coldworking shop is a dream!
I use several different machines to make my beads. A belt sander, glass lathe, wet saw etc. I do not use a dremel. No coldworker would even consider a dremel a coldworking tool! I wish it was that easy but alas it's not. These beads take me a long time, up to 3 hours! So here is some eye candy.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
