Pictures worth a thousand beads!

Yes, I know - a trite saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words" but in this case, it's worth a thousand beads because that's what I'm making in these pictures - beads and spirals! During Wednesday's demo at AirSep, the company photographer made the rounds taking pictures of the celebration for the company. He usually takes pictures of oxygen concentrators and generators but on Wednesday, he had some different subjects to photograph - a nice mix for him that day. His name is Phil and he kindly shared the photos he took while I was making beads. Cool, huh? Thanks for sending me the photos, Phil!

I've never seen my minor torch from this angle - the candles look good!

I made the fingerless glove that I'm wearing to protect my left hand from the heat of the flame. It was a frequently asked question - isn't your hand too close to the flame? Isn't it hot? How do you hold your hand so close to the flame?

The glove protects my hand but I also have gotten used to the heat. I've built up a tolerance to the heat on my hand.

Have you built up a tolerance to something?

I'm jealous-that looks like so much fun!

I'm just so not into heat! Ask anyone. My friend Cindy Brown of Cindy Beads wanted to show me how to make beads, and I had to very earnestly tell her no. You see I just know that I torches aren't a good thing together. I have a lot of trouble with a stove for heavens sake, and we don't even want to think about knives right now. . .I'm too shakey from all that heat!
