Playing with fire....

This is how I spend much of my non-canine time, playing with fire...safely of course!

A glass bead starts out looking something like this! I have an ever growing collection of these rods.

Then I do some of this!

And some more fire! This can take awhile!

Eventually, the bead goes in this ugly, but effective kiln. The annealing cycle takes about 12 hours.

When all that is over, pretty beads come out of the kiln!

Didn't your Mommy tell you not to play with fire?

Be careful that you don't burn your Finners or singe your Hair ...
Happy Bead Building!
