I don’t usually make many finished pieces as I enjoy creating at the torch. I believe in the “Jack of all trades and master of none” philosophy and it is either making glass beads or making jewellery.

Also called “Glass Tops”, these are interchangeable cabochons created for using on ring or pendants systems using the “screw & nut” technique. The cabochons come with a thread which is attached during the lampworking process. You would attach the cabochon onto the ring or pendant which has the screw mechanism.
Making beads with specific colours is a wonderful method to create bead sets. In a set, certain design elements are repetitive, not just the colours. The repetitiveness is what I enjoy when I discover a “new” technique or idea. I do sketch out my ideas on paper before I proceed to torch for the day.
