...here is a pic of a few lampwork beads I made in my first class on Saturday - you will see the glass rods behind the beads which were used to make the beads - I have more beads from my second class on Sunday, but those are getting annealed and I will get them in next few days - the lady who taught me is called Pauline and this is her website http://www.paulinedelaney.com/ - if you are interested in taking lampwork beadmaking classes and you live in Australia, check out her webpage and see if she has any classes close to your home - she is a wonderful artist and a great lady and I had an absolute ball learning how to melt glass...cheers everyone!

Hi Everyone! It has been nearly a year since I have been on blogger - thought I would just stop by and say hello and catch you up with what I have been doing all that time.
I am really into lampwork beads now - in fact, I have classes starting tomorrow and cannot wait to make my first lampwork glass bead - once I get some hands on experience I plan to set up my art studio with all the lampworking equipment I will need and start making these pretties myself The 4 beads you see in the photo have been purchased from very talented lampwork artists in US as well as Australia and I have just added the wire wrapping to them.
I hope everyone is happy ad well and I look forward to browsing your pages shortly! Cheers Val
