New Beads

I have been playing with shards,thin pieces of glass.I am getting pretty good at blowing my own with a Borosilicate tube.Heating the gather of glass on the end and then puffing into the other end of the tube to create a bubble of glass.Then I let it cool and,the fun part,break it! Then the pieces of thin glass are applied to the warm bead.These are my new set with Raku shards.
