Yesterday while planning on making stock for the upcoming 5th Annual Stourbridge Bead Fair on 25th & 26th and Celebrate Glass on the 27th August I ended up going off in a completely different direction. I have a tiny TV in my studio and like the past few days was hooked on watching the Olympics while busy melting glass. My beads got BIG!!
The first was this one which is made using TAG Fire Lotus, a glass I am becoming increasingly fond of.
And all from someone who thought the Olympics was going to be boring rather than emotional, exciting and inspiring! To give you an idea of the size of these beads here is a group shot in my hand.
