This form of handling glass is called lampworking. I melt glas infront of a fier and shape it there. It is kind of like glassblowing but in miniature.
It is all about temperature. Not to coold, then the glass will not move. Not to hot, then the glass just melt to drops on the tabel, and you dont want that.
This is on of My first glassbeads. I put it on a silverring so i can wear it on My finger or around My neck.
I have a LOT of Fun making these beads. You have to have a Great bunch of patience and many houers to get a skill. Im still learning every bead I make.
Love you and this
