I Made Beads!

Well, two. 

I made two beads.

But still, they are out of glass,
and I MADE them!

These are the two that I made:

My cute little sis in law said her friend makes glass beads,
and she had invited us over to make some with her.
Did I want to accept the invitation?
So away we went.

She turned on her blow torch and her other little doo dahs,
handed us a stick (to make the bead on)
and a stick of colored glass to melt onto the stick,
and bam we were some bead makin' babes.

I guess I shouldn't exaggerate too much...

I was actually a little scared of the blazing blow torch
right in front of my face,
as well as the option of having some glass shatter
right in front of my face
if I didn't let it get hot slow enough,
and I only had to watch about 5 beads get made
before I dared to try it myself....
But then, Bam, there I was,
Makin beads out of glass with my own hands.

I think when I have some working space of my own
I'll look into getting my own supplies.
It was so much fun to do and to watch.

Then I can be a bead makin' babe every day.
