I can't torch at the moment, for ventilation and pain in the a** gas reasons. I'm going to have to go onto bulk fuel sometime in the new year, buyt until then, what's a creative gal to do?
Well, I have resolved to learn beadweaving and wirework, so that I can make more jewellery from my own beads! And I have found that I rather enjoy beadweaving, It's quite therapeutic really :-) I recently made these following a tutorial from Lynn Davey (currently available in this listing) The sparkly crystals are Swarovski!
Then there was a challenge on Frit happens, so I learned Tubular Peyote stitch and made a Cellini Spiral tube bead, which then demanded to be turned into an icicle!
