I can't get either link to open on my iPad! What can I do to be able to watch this video and store it so I can view it more than once?

I made a bead with stripes today, it went ok but for some reason when I melt them down the thicknesses are not even. I had a request for a dream bead and the girl wanted her name on it. I managed to write that reasonably well! Thanks

I tried to make a "stringer" bead today. Hahahhaahhahahaha! I got one line to go on like I knew what I was doing....the rest were hysterical!! So I just raked the lines into feathers and said " I meant to do that!" Then I pulled stringers in all different sizes. Tomorrow, I WILL make a bead that at least resembles yours! I WILL!!

ok Tillie...lets see it. Time to show and tell...lol.

I just purchased the tutorial. Without even trying to make a bead I have already learned a couple of things just from watching the video. Looking forward to trying it out!

Bwahahahahahahaha! I promise you that you do NOT want to see my bead! I'm still trying to get that "heat control for stringers" thingy down....not having a whole lot of luck, but still trying. FYI, that bead is butt fugly and is hiding under my plumeria tree with the rest of my wonky fuglies.

Tillie, how about a little challenge? between you and me...who will post a half decent bead (using this tutorial) first ? You game? we have one week to create, then on Feb 4th we post our offerings.

PS...I tried to add my fuglies to the landscaping and dear hubby had a conniption. Said he didn't want glass all over the place...lol . I'm about ready to hang them from the tree in the back yard.

You gals go for it!!!!

Did either of you try raising your torch as Claudia suggested??

It made a huge difference for me. It gives you more space between the benchtop and the underneath side of the flame.

I tell you something else I did that helped.

I set the iPad right beside my torch.
I prepared a cold lentil bead on a mandrel.
I prepared some stringers.
With NO FLAME ON, I watched Claudia for a little bit.
Stopped the video, positioned my hands just like hers and mimicked her motions with stringer and mandrel.
I think it is really important that your hands work in tandem.
And that you get a feel for the finger positions of each hand.
I have a tendency to hold my stringer like a pencil.
I have to deliberately make my hands do something different.

I am determined!!!!

Lol....I can't torch for a couple of days but I have been mentally designing and executing these beads. I'm so excited to try them out.

I have been watching the video over and over! I'm going to try your trick, Dix! Everything else you've helped me with is working, slowly but surely! Right now, I keep trying to put stringer on just like I out on a rod of glass! I'm going to try to start holding it like she does, but don't know if I can. I'm going out right now, and work while it's cool out there. Wish me luck.

Hope you have better luck than I'm having Tillie. My bead release keeps breaking and I think it is because my studio is just too cold. I did manage to make one fuglie before I got chilled.

I haven't showed anyone mine yet. I don't have a straight sided lentil, so it is not as neat as it could be. I ended up making a lentil and practicing on it with different colored stringers. After using three colors and melting it all in it looks interesting. Sort of like a shadowing effect.

And don't forget you can practice with base colors for some things, and then melting it in you have a blank canvas again.

Good idea, Eileen! I got some halfway (and I use "half" in a very loose way) decent looking stripes today. Then I tried the spirals....did you know that after you screw up on the spirals, and it looks weird, that you can rake across the bottom half and make eyeballs out of the spirals and it makes a cool looking weird skull?!?!? I think I'm gonna have to give up......

That is what I did. I ended up with an interesting multicolored bead. Sorry the pic is so big. I don't know how to make it smaller from my iPad

Cool, but I meant if you make the base out of turquoise, make the stripes the same color, melt in and do it again on the newly smooth and one color base.
