Ohhhhh my.... And I love it! What a pleasant environment to produce beads in. First beads in nearly two years. I did make a few on a Hothead torch, but once you go dual-fuel, it is sooo hard to go back to the slow, bushy flame of a Hothead. Good learning torch, but if you are serious about production, the dual fuel setup is a delight. I made all these beads last night in about an hour and practically filled my kiln. And the beads are still round! I expected lumpy beads after such a long hiatus, but these turned out pretty good! They are going to be a necklace for my niece.
Studio pix soon. I am nearly organized enough to show you the lampwork studio. I have a separate area for jewelry assembly. That one is messier and will take a little longer before it is ready for public viewing.
