Saturday’s Lesson

I had so much fun teaching the lovely Emma from The Candy Tree on Saturday.
She had never worked with hot glass before and did a wonderful job! Here are some pictures of the beads she made (and a couple of buttons on top of that for fun). All of these were mastered in just four hours at the torch, she’s definitely a natural!

If you are around Edinburgh and interested in learning some lampwork, I offer 4 hour or 8 hour lessons. Feel free to e-mail me for more information.

2013…

I feel blog guilt. It’s been quite a while, but everything has been mad busy here, which is definitely a good thing! I taught a lovely lady some lampwork skills yesterday, have a couple of new galleries lined up for 2013 already, and my etsy shop is ticking along well. On top of all this, I’m working slowly but surely on some new ranges of jewellery and beads, and hope to share the inspiration and making process with you all.

In the meantime, I have been working on some little, more affordable for January versions of some of my more popular beads, ranging from £12 to £14 for a set. I’ll leave you with some of them for now (links are clickable) and be back with some of my new work and ideas quicksmart!

A colour combination that keeps popping up in my mind to try! I need to do it tomorrow, just figuring out which shades to do it in.

Pinspiration…

I finally signed up to Pinterest, after dithering over it for ages. I think I really like it! Lots of inspiration was provided for my work in the studio today (and hopefully I will have something special to show for it tomorrow). Here are some of my favourite ‘pins’ so far…
