Anyway...since I am new to lampworking and I play and learn and figure out a style, I am amassing a large pile of beads on my desk:
They might be slightly wonky, but they have decent, non-sharp holes and are made with high quality soft glass and were kiln annealed - just like the pros do!
So here is the question...do you think that there would me a market for "starter beads" that come at a less than "Master Designer" price?
Here are some close ups - let me know what you think - tell me your favorite - and I will pick a winner March 4th. And maybe put the rest in my shop!
