This blog is intended to document my journey into the world of handmade artisan lampwork beads.

I recently had a few hours of heaven at the torch and had been thinking about my mom's love of the beach. I have a really good friend that loves the beach and that I owe some jewelry in trade for a blood pressure cuff she didn't need. So I practiced making some murrini that I hoped would emulate shells or barnacles. Well that was more time consuming than I had anticipated but turned out better than my other attempts. Then I made a ocean theme bead and put them on the sand part. I rarely am really pleased with a first attempt, but I was pleasantly pleased and so was she.
I am going to make a pendant for her and maybe a loop at the bottom to hang some sea charms on. What do you think?
