having a go

is always worthwhile, trying something new, I think : )

I tried lampworking with my sister-in-law last week, and it was a really enjoyable experience, very relaxing and calming, no noise, lots of lovely colours of glass, and other twinkly things! And so above you see the results, though one is well out of focus, my arty shot didn’t quite come off!

The one on the piece of metal is stuck there : ( The bead release cracked while I was making the bead and so now the glass in stuck to the mandrel, but Kate does hope to release it!

She now has her little shed and new torch so she is doing some lovely new stuff which most of which you can find in her new shop!

I would like to have another go, but this time not to try all the pretty things at once!
