Short lampworking session

Today Ben and I spent some time working on lampwork beads. I didn't have any clear direction about what to work on so I asked Ben to pick out some colors while I cleaned the glass rods.  He chose a filigree rod - a thin pink rod inside a clear one - and I helped him make his own bead to get started.  

I'm still thinking about what I want to work on and made a couple of testers, but his bead turned out great...a clear bead with what look like ribbons of pink twisting through it. 


  1. Talented boy you got there El!

    1. I think so too! The older he gets, the more I feel like I am running to try to keep up with him...I'm glad he likes to do these things with me!
