I’ve been very quiet on this blog lately. Don’t you hate these posts?
Here is some bead porn to view; this was the result of a very long torch day last week.
I make these beads 6 (usually) at a time on stainless steel welding rods (mandrels in glass-speak). The white substance is called bead release and prevents the beads from sticking to the mandrels once they have been cooled. I like making multiples because I can get matching sets much easier.
