What did you think I was talking about?
So normally I make beads on teeny-tiny rods, but I always like to experiment with found objects. And the other day my fiance brought me home this beauty and I couldn't wait to use it.
So I dipped the end in bead release, and wrapped some glass around it. This is what I got:
not quite big enough to fit around my sausage-fingers, but I could definitely make a ring for a hand with daintier fingers or some other interesting jewelry with it. Since the rod is hollow I can use it for blowing- but one technique at a time. For now I'm going to try to make a piece of jewelry out of these:
Wish me luck!
P.S. I should be able to figure out my kiln situation tonight! Details as soon as I get them.
