Rolling with the Boro....

Welcome to Glass & Light. If we haven't met before, you can visit my "other blog" (see link on the right) for a more personal view into my soul.

Today I'm showing off a few of my new beads, made with Boro. This is a new batch, my first after returning from a family visit to California. You'll note that I'm trying out some new techniques here (look at that blue bead with the star field embedded in it, for instance, I really did that on purpose :-). I'm a happy camper today, although I believe there is a lot of room for improvement... A very few of these are/will be posted in my Etsy store.

Tips for Glass Artists:
All my beads are made with a Nortel Minor torch coupled with an O2 concentrator. While many will tell you that it just isn't possible, I'm here to tell you that it is... I highly recommend the tutorial "Boro on a Concentrator" written by a very talented glass artist nameed Pipyr. You can see Pipyr's art and purchase one of her wonderful tutorials at http://www.pipyr.etsy.com

Hi, all comments welcome!

Did you know I recycle?

I reuse shipping and packing materials whenever possible. If relevant, your package will include a note to let you know how I conserved resources when packing up your purchase.
