Twisted Tuesdays - Bead In A Bead Hollow

Oh, what a wild ride it was to getting this video made for you. I attempted it several times yesterday and there were either kids horsing around in the background or spiders dropping down on my desk (totally not kidding, there is an outtake on Facebook, check it). So, I snuck down to the studio early this morning to have another go. I am totally okay with the fact that I am still in my pjs and my hair isn't washed. Whatcha see is whatcha get! HA! This is about bead making not how glamorous I look. I did quite a bit of editing, I realize when I babble and know where the delete button is for those parts. The whole process took about twice as long as the video shows (approximately 12mins). I wish I had a camera person to focus for me and zoom in on the important bits. Alas, it is just me and a make shift tripod. I hope you can learn a thing or two anyway!!



For those that don't make beads and have no desire to learn, here is some hollow beady goodness for you! Enjoy...

hollows 1
stripey hollows 2
green hollows
purple hollows
blue hollows

The blue set of hollows and the green set (SOLD, THANKS!) are still available it someone wants to snatch them up ($100 each set). The stripey ones, the purple, and the green sets have sold (THANK YOU!!).

It's so cool that you make beads Kerry! I wish I could do it so badly but I'm terrible at it and there's no one locally to watch! I guess I'll stick to beaded beads....
But you're so awesome!!! I appreciate the videos!!!

Thanks,Kerry.
I haven,t ever seen lampwork beads being made before,even though I have a friend who is a lampworker.I never seem to have the time to go to watch her work,so this was a treat for me!I am interested in having a go but I think that will have to wait for the time being.I currently make cernit beads for my own designs.Cheers,Anne.

Great job, Kerry!! Very fun piece! Just wondering how well you're able to clean out the bead inside, since you can't hold it in place to let the Dremel do it's job. Any tips?
