A close up of my newest handmade beads I made the beads using a hothead bunsen burner and mapp gas / propane gas in my kitchen - it's the next best thing to a studio!! Making glass beads is sooooo addictive and so much fun
Thanks for the comment. Yes it is very expensive and extremely addictive. The rational side of me says don't start! The arty side of me says - pay loads of money but you'll have loads of fun!! It cost me £100 for the initial setup, which isn't too painful, and the glass isn't that expensive, but the gas canisters will reduce your bank account to tears. They're very over priced and don't last that long. Apparently the massive canisters are value for money but I've got nowhere to store one
It's all worth it though, it's so much fun If you're based in the UK search for 'Tuffnell Glass' online, that's where I buy all my supplies from.
