WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR GLASS SHORTS?
Sue from Sue Beads asked what do lampworkers do with our glass shorts. She got a lots of good tips. I told her about my picture frame I made with my shorts and I added some wonkie beads but I needed them to be flat so I put back on a mandrel slowly put back into the flame got hot and put it into a tea strainer put up to a cool fan and it cracked in half. I glued them on a cheap wood frame with the shorts and used basic mosaic technique. Thats my 2 year old granddaughter in the picture that was 6 years ago. We just got back from watching her soccer game. We live three hours away so I won't see every game which makes me sad. I love watching her play.
