Yep, just one little one.
I’m spending all weekend making beads for the Beads Of Courage charity. These are the ones I made last night.
The polar bear was in a tutorial and I didn’t want to print out the instructions so I tried making it by memory. It needs more detail and I forgot the tail. I’m going to try another one tonight.
The round fish are new editions. I really wanted to make them flat using my lentil press but I haven’t used a glass press in eons and didn’t want to spend the time mucking with it. Hence, round fish.
The cat and cake beads are from the same tutorial. I had the hardest time remember what a piece of cake looks like and kept putting the “frosting” on the wrong sides. It’s not like I haven’t ate enough cake to remember. Finally got it figure out. Whew….
I was trying to think of a way to make some pretty head pins for the cell phone charms and zipper pulls I make. I found some stainless steel wire, cut it into pieces and melted some glass to make the little balls on the end of the wire.
The wire came out of the kiln a really metallic blue. Pretty neato. But I didn’t want to leave them like that so I polished it off.
These are a few charms that I made with the glass head pins. I need to test them and see how well they hold up.
