The Fire Diva Duo

I had the wonderful pleasure of pulling 2 fabulous beads from the kiln this morning. Jen & Mary (now nicknamed the Fire Diva Duo) were pros. Stunning work for their first go at lampworking. Check out their beautiful work:Mary created the transparent blue bead with murrini detail (Left).
Jen created the transparent pink/periwinkle bead with murrini and polka dot details (Right).

Wow! I'm impressed...they did an awesome job for a first bead. I say you put them in the sweat shop with you. :-)

I had fun! I only cried once & I managed to keep my face out of the blow torch. I still have no idea how you do what you do. Watching you...you make it look smooth & easy. Watching Mary on the other hand....Her facial expressions where awesome! Panic mixed w/ fear. My palms still sweat when I think of twirling.."Twirl it toward you...NO.. TOWARD you!!"

hahahah! I believe it was "twirl it away from you... NO... AwAy from you!" It sounds so tramatic when you describe it Jen :) I am still kicking myself for not taking pictures!

Was it "away" not towards? I have a hard time remembering. Still trying to recover from the beatdown w/ the taper thing.
