After a couple of years, I have started to participate in exchanges again on Lampworketc.
Right now, the Big Hole Bead Exchange is going on and it's been fun!
I use these exchanges as an opportunity to hone my skills on a particular type of bead.
Big Hole Beads
I also enjoy getting to know my fellow participants.
Everyone ends up with lovely beads.
The rules in this exchange say that we should send 5-10 beads.
We will receive the same number in return.
I realized today that I am one bead short for this exchange.
I have more time to make that bead.
How big do the holes have to be on these beads?
The smallest holes should be around 1/4 inch or big enough to fit the Euro Style bracelets.
Other than that, the sky is the limit.
These are the beads that I am sending as a hostess giftie. I hope Cori likes them.
Vanilla ice cream anyone?
Want a chocolate ice cream cone?
How about a chocolate covered cherry?
I even managed to core one bead? Can you believe it's cored with aluminum tubing?
Here's what the bead looks like.
I love the way the twistie melted in this bead.
How about an animal skin bead?
Murrini melted and encased.
The hole on this bead is 1/2 inches.
Here's a group shot.
Now there's only one bead left to go!
I'll post that later.
