Hmm, need to look at a photo tutorial before taking pictures next time . . . these shouldn't be NEARLY so yellow! Warning, rank newbie pictures  Undecided

I've had a class followed by 3-4 short sessions on my own, here 'tis . . . .
first class

Playing around with dots, raking & encasing

Playing around with surface texture - should have melted in the blue one further . . . .

A couple frogs I was trying to put together - didn't finish the left one as it had started to crack

Playing around with encased bubbles & wavy beads

Playing with mavers & sculpture

A couple shots of a couple Pandora beads I was playing with


Well, this started out as a bead that I was going to try to rake that went south, but I think it'll work as a pendant . . . .

And three shots of an attempt at a focal bead - encased with texture

Awesome Smiley  I especially like the frog. Lampwork is so much fun! I need to post a thread like this of my own sometime.

Very good!  Way better than my first attempts at making beads.  My first beads were wonky and lumpy and burnt.  *L*
I'm impressed.
