Fresh from the kiln
These small beads are a new batch I am working on and really enjoying the soft reactive glass. The very odd shaped button is my first attempt using a bead mandrel with two prongs, it looks a bit like an enamelling firing fork but smaller. As you can see I haven't got the hang of this at all - and getting it off the mandrel was a bit of a nightmare so it may be some time before I attempt another.
I might sew it onto a bag I have that originally had a handmade ceramic button that got broken.
