My favorite class bead!

This is my favorite bead from Corina's class. We used several colors of glass, goldstone, silver foil and dichroic glass. What fun!

Corina's class

I made this bead on the second day of Corina's class. It has several colors of glass and silver mesh in it.

Corina Tettinger's class

I made this bead in Corina's class. She made the checkerboard and gave some to everyone in class. This bead has lots to look at!

Ammonite bead

This is my ammonite bead from day two of Andrea's class

Andrea's class - day two

This is my version of Andrea Guarino's galaxy bead. This was so much fun to make. We used several different colors of glass, goldstone, fine silver wire and silver foil in this bead.

This is a dress form I altered for a fund raiser for Susan G. Komen. It will be auctioned off at Stamp Salado at the end of September. It has ribbon woven around the skirt and lampworked beads around the waist. It is approximately 14 inches tall.

I had a blast in Andrea's class! Here are some of the beads I made the first day. These hearts are made off the end of the mandrel using silver mesh and glass powders.

Kate's (Fabulous) blog and Lisa Jo Hartman's Shaping class at Blue Moon Glassworks

Check out Kate's fabulous blog from the link on my favorites. She has been doing some gorgeous artwork in paper arts, mixed media and glass fusing. She and I both need to get out and work with glass in the studio.

I recently finished Lisa Jo Hartman's shaping class at Blue Moon Glassworks in Austin, Texas. What a wonderful class! We learned shaping of various beads, making and placing stringer, working with large amounts of glass and encasing techniques. This is a "must-take class" for all beginning lampworkers. I can't wait for her next class at Blue Moon!

I'm also excited about Andrea Guarino's class at Blue Moon Glassworks in April. Check out her work on my favorites link.
