What's a musher to do when spring arrives? Being of a slightly obsessive nature to start with, the only plausible answer is to find a new obsession. I have found mine--playing with gas and fire to make tiny works of art--glass beads! All I want to do is make beads! (Try not to freak out Mom, so far no explosions and only a minor finger tip burn--note to self, glass stays hot for a long while!)
This was my first set, made 8 days ago, the beginning of the end!
These were my second batch of beads, made on Thursday of last week. I don't really like any of them, but I had a great time creating them!
And these are my most recent creations and the ones I like the best so far!
Carmen at Aurora Glass has been a very good teacher, despite the fact that I'm sure she's sick of seeing me! She used to work at Yukon Vet though so she is used to seeing my face! I spent alot of time and money there before Alpine opened. I have no doubt that I will be spending just as much time and money in her glass store! I need my own torch, oxygen concentrator, a kiln, more colors of glass, more tools....ect, ect. Cuz I didn't have enough ways to spend my time and money already!
