I have been working on some new things in the lampwork shop. I've been making mates for orphan beads. Sometimes things turn out fine and you'd never know that they weren't made at the same time. Other times, not so much.
I did get in some beautiful striking glass that has been wonderful to play with. I usually don't splurge because the striking glass is usually 4 times as expensive as the regular stuff. I make sure I use every single little bit when I do get it in. I'm so happy with the results that I can't wait until I can order more of it. It's just so beautiful.
I'm trying to figure out a display system. My studio is in my home and I'm starting to have people in to look at and purchase my work so the old system of putting everything in boxes doesn't work anymore. I need to be able to display my work. I have a plan that I will attempt to execute in the next week or two.
