Little Lampworks Sets
My package from Arrow Springs arrived yesterday so I had some fun new glass colors and tools to try out at the torch last night :) A few of the things I wanted are on back-order and I am also waiting for a few things from Rio Grande, so the fun should keep on coming as the rest of my lampworking supplies arrive. After a night of lampwork and a morning of cleaning bead release from the holes in my newest beads I strung together a few little sets (see the photo above, which I took with my phone just before heading to work this morning). I used frit (crushed glass chunks/powder) for the first time last night--another first in my lampwork repetoire :) The frit I used was large-chunk "egyptian blue" on top of a "bullfrog" green base color resulting in the pair of large spotted beads on the far left of the picture above.
