This weekend was my glass bead making class and I had such a good time! It's definitely more complicated than it looks. This is a picture of the beads I made:
Some are decent for a first attempt and some were downright flops! But, it was fun and I think with some practice I can work out the kinks. I've had ideas running through my head about beads I can make. I have almost everything I need to make them at home, and hopefully by the end of the week I'll be all set up.
The class was pretty tiring--mentally and physically! If Travis hadn't gone with me I would have gone back to the condo Saturday night and collapsed immediately. One of the most amazing things is I came through the class without a single burn! I get burned practically every time I iron or steam clothes, so I really did expect to have at least a few nasty ones.
So, it was an expensive weekend, but definitely worth it!
