I managed to make these!!!

I had a mega session on the torch yesterday and yes I only managed to make simple beads BUT... I have practised round beads and encasing and overall a good haul I think.

The encasing is fine sadly the glass is not! I appear to have a bad batch of Effetre clear which goes "scummy" when I heat it. This means that there are loads and loads of tiny bubbles. Does not affect the bead itself but aesthetically some people won't like the look. I have etched them which has made them look better and I quite like them.


  1. They are really totally scrummy!!! (not scummy lol) xx

  2. Saffie, they're gorgeous, just thing I need to brighten my morning!
