HOLY CRAPOLA! Know what these are? Any guesses? These beads are freakin' LAMPWORKED BEADS!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that's right, glass beads made by hand with a torch! Geezy Pete's I am makin' these! I know it may take years, but I am tellin' ya, I HAVE FOUND INSPIRATION! Amazing, simply AMAZING!
Just to take this class you have to have over a $GRAND$ and be mega experienced already in lampwork, so that leaves me out. But, WOWSERSSSSSSSS this makes me dream! I love how the beads have a silver metal center where the hole usually is; and then they are wire-wrapped and most likely soldered all around the outside and made into pendants of sorts. My brain is hardly wrapping around this technique of lampwork. I have seriously NEVER seen anything like it!
OH, HOW I WANT A KILN FOR CHRISTMAS!
Anyone want to invest in my business to get me started on making these myself now?
OH THE TORTURE! It's KILLING ME!
