The other day I had some time with the torch and my kiln. I decided to play first with making head pins - I love the ones I see other great artists make (like SueBeads) - so thought I'd give it a shot. I have a big bag of millefiori that I used for a couple of the pairs, and then used raku frit on the oblong ones.  The big one is two millefiori squished together.  The hardest part? Making them similarly sized.  I have no idea how to do that - other than making 1,000 head pins and then matching them :-)

Then I played more making hollow beads.  I need a lot more practice! The green one I forgot to put a second hole in - so let's call that a vessel bead instead of a traditional bead :-)
