    Lamp glass bead making

    What does this have to do with wood turning?? I have turned about a dozen bottle stoppers, turned one lidded vessel using the Beall Tool Co method.

    I am going to use these little lamp glass beads as finials and decorations on the bottle stoppers and lidded vessels.

    I am taking a class this fall at the J-Ring Glass Studio in St Paul.

    I love to watch the glass artists. I wish there was a cheap way to get into the glass blowing end of it. Good luck on your venture. I join the others in being anxious to see the results.

    That will make a great use of mixed mediums Ted!

    Back when I did quite a bit of stained glass I was trying to get my wife into bead making. She and my daughter used to make a lot of jewelry together. I signed her up for the class and the night of, she was not feeling well, so I got to take the class instead. Had a lot of fun doing it and found it to be rewarding, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well.
