I'm amazed! Is it hard to do?  Does it take a lot of skill and time?  Debs Smiley

What adorable earrings these would all make!

I'm looking for wrist watches or old clocks. Broken or working, doesn't matter! I will swap anything you would like.

It doesn't take too much time...and the skill comes the more you do it.  I started out making sort of round-ish beads.  *L*  My first bunch of "beads" were lopsided, strangely colored, sometimes burned, sometimes cracked.  But I still have them.

Because I'm using MAPP Gas (about 8 dollars for a small can from Home Depot), and a HotHead torch head (about 45 dollars) it was relatively inexpensive to get started.  I spent about 25 dollars on a bundle of glass rods (COE 104 or soft glass). 

I absolutely LOVE making beads.  It's very...um...personal, I guess.  I put on my earbuds with music I love (well, only one earphone so that I can hear the torch in case it starts making strange noises *L*) and start makin' stuff.

I run with scissors.....it makes me feel DANGEROUS!!
