more beads

Of course I finally got my torching table set up with the new Creation Station in place, which means I had to take it out for a test drive. The first night I made a few purple beads with purple frit, just because I love purple. (Well, duh!!) The only problem I had was the frit got a little more "done" than I like, but they are still pretty. The next night I made a variety of beads, including an experimental wavy bead. You would never recognize it as such, but it was fun to try anyway. I discovered it is much harder than it looks to melt down, and it was easier to place those dots than I thought. So i am sure it won't be my last attempt. I also made a SW bead from the tutorial I was gifted, and a red bead wrapped in silver, and of course a heart. They are what I make when I can't figure out what else to make. Here they are. I plan on making more tonight. Wish me luck.

Rita, they're gorgeous! When are you going to turn them into wearable pieces? Maybe you're like me ... I just made necklaces with beads I made over the last couple of years!
