I have just returned home from a week of learning how to make lampwork beads. Ann Royer taught the class at William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Young Harris, Georgia. The green bead is my creative way of making an organic bead.
Ann would do demonstrations of how to make beads. We then, turned on the flame and started the torch. I admit, I was the student who was constantly saying, Ann. She was so patient and always provided assistance. There were five of us in the week long class. Two beginners, I was one. Three intermediate glass beaders. Now, these women made penguins with light sabers!
These are my green stems and leaves and little dots for flowers.
