Watch Me Make A Bead - Hollows!


It has been way way too long since I made a how-to video for y'all. So, here you go!
Watch me create a pretty blue hollow bead in just about five minutes.

Some things you should know:
1)Yes, I know my glasses sit low on my nose. Sorry, they are too big. Besides, I like looking over the top of them. It lets me see what I am doing.

2)To me, my voice sounds high pitched and nasally. Ugh... but oh well... that is me. LOL.

3) I did this in about ten minutes with so script or practice. I just did it. So if there is something I missed or questions you have, leave a comment and I will do my best to answer it.

Enjoy and thanks for watching.

It's always fun to watch others make beads, thanks for sharing that......once I learned to make hollows it took me a long time before I moved on to something else. They are mesmerizing when you first 'get it'. I didn't realize you worked on a minor. I had one for a long time but now have a Lynx.

You are a great teacher Kerry! You made it look easy...I hope this means we may see some hollows and discs for sale in the beadbox? (hint hint)

Kerry, you are a natural at teaching lampwork (now it's my turn to say wink,wink!).... You can just see your passion for lampworking shine through in this video....it brings back memories! :-)

Cool! (Or should I say hot?)
I don't make anything like that but I love to use your beads and that gives me a completely renewed sense of awe at their beauty. I know that if I were doing that, you would most certainly have been watching the firemen coming to my aid! I would love to learn how to do things like this, and I think that you would be a GREAT teacher. (and no, your voice is not high-pitched!). You are lovely. As are your beads! Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration!
Enjoy the day!
