Welcome to A Hot Piece of Glass!

WELCOME to my colorful corner of the world! I write here about the things I make, in glass, fiber, metals, and whatever else I can find to play with!

I love earrings. I hate making earring pair beads, because I have such a hard time sometimes getting two beads the same! However, once in a while, the glasswork gods shine down upon me and I actually manage two beads in the same size and same decoration. Then I get to make my earrings!
Dark Dots -- sterling silver earwires, lampwork beads by me!

Dangly Dots -- sterling silver wirework and earwires, red and white lampwork dot beads by me!

The Blues -- sterling silver wire, blue and green lampwork dot beads by me!

They should all be in my Etsy shop in a few minutes!

Awesome! I'm having a hard time learning how to keep the one bead warm while working on the other -- I've ended up with thermal-cracked beads more than once.

Yeah, it's tough to make 2 beads on the same mandrel....lots of heat control. Unless the beads are really small, I tend to do them on separate mandrels, because I don't have as much heat with the HotHead.

Very pretty, Christine! It must be hard to get uniform beads...that's how I feel trying to make uniform earwires!
