Last week was our first Livestream murrina demo. Greg made a butterfly murrina cane and I hosted in the chat area answering questions and/or relaying questions to him to address.
This week I will be making a murrine ring focal and Greg will be hosting chat. Don’t forget 2pm Sunday CST. That’s 12 pm pacific, 1pm mountain, and 3pm eastern. In this demo you’ll get to see how I encase with minimal bubbles and without smearing. Hope to see you there. The chat feature is really cool and mucho fun.
There is a first time for everything! It’s a dragon bead on 99 cent auction day.
I just love this bead. Ocean Currents.
This months Ornament Thursday topic is Brew. So I brewed up a few witches for your viewing pleasure. Glass witches that is. I want to share with you how I started on my journey of witches. I asked my girlfriends to brain storm with me on new ideas for sculptural beads. They came up with a range of things, none of them sticking to my creative side. Then one of them put “witch” out there.
At the time I was pretty young in my lampworking days and just didn’t know how I would go about making such a piece in glass. So I searched for tutorials on one of my favorite lampworking sites lampwork Etc. I didn’t find a witch, but I did find a goddess tutorial by Sarah J Schalken.
I studied her tutorial and spent about three days working on my new witch design, and suddenly she was born. An excellent example of taking someone elses instruction and making it your own.
