MAKE GLASS BEADS

After covering all the safety features of flamework, learn to use the elements of heat control and gravity for shaping and decorating small amounts of molten glass.  It takes a bit of practise, but after a few beads you will improve and get the feel of it.   Shaping and decorating with dots, lines and flower patterns makes for interesting beads that can be used in multiple ways.

You will make 6 - 10 beads and select your best one for the final project.
