Pretty excited to show you my first soldered lampworked earrings!
Made possible with Vickie Hallmark's excellent tutelage. The bead was something I'd had for a while and couldn't throw away even though it had a thermal crack running down the middle. I finished breaking apart the bead with a round file which made them perfect for a pair of earrings.
These probably took me a good 4-5 hours to make! Vickie's studio was like being in tool heaven, I have a long xmas list of goodies for the studio. You won't see me asking for expensive jewelry or clothes, just get me some tools!
My mind is a-whirl with new ideas, hope to get to them after the show and my first teaching gig next month.
