What I Learned in Caitlin Hyde's Class - Some of my class beads

We started out with faces. The face on the left is my class bead. The face on the right is the bead I made when I got home.

Oh, these beads are two sided. Stay tuned for side 2.

Here's side 2.

Skulls. The one on the left I made in class. The one on the right, I made at home.

I've learned that it's all about heat control. I'm working with the smallest flame I have ever used now.

How about a creature?
came about as a result of a doodle. I wanted to make a cell bead. It became a creature.

It's my first Pixie bead. It's cute, but I like the second one so much better. Remember what I said about heat control? I'm learning. I'm learning!

Now, this is my favorite. It was my last class bead. Caitlin's conference helped me so much!

Guess who this is?

I'm wire wrapping it tonight!

Thank you, Caitlin, your class was excellent!

I love seeing the progression of your beads from/inspired by the class. Your Pixie at the end is so adorable. The angle of her head and eyes just looks like she's peeking up at you.

I like the second one too, Mallory. It looks just like Pixie! Got her personality and everything. Looks like you absorbed Caitlin's teaching very well. :-)

How wonderful! I have always wanted to learn to make beads and reading your blog and seeing the last few posts I may just have to take a class so I can try...

Love your work!

Arya, I hope you do take some classes in lampworking. If you enjoy it, I think you'll be hooked like the rest of us!
