This is my first post here and my first boro post. I started working with it in January, and I love it!
A set of Alaskan thunder & clear frit, and I think the pendant is triple passion.

Well, my stuff isn't near as nice as everyone else's but I'm mighty proud of it. After a year, I was FINALLY FINALLY able to make some plain round boro beads without burning off each and every mandrel... only shortened a couple of them...

The vast majority of these were made with NS Rust and Paula's Rainbow Sands frit. The colors aren't quite right - I need to work on my photography and Photoshop skills next...!



And of course, did some Pandora's....



As well as buttons....



And "regular" beads...

Barbara, don't feel badly...it took me forever to be able to make simple round boro beads! I can sooooo understand!1
Speaking of simple, these are nothing elaborate, just some simple beads and spacers. I was playing with an experimental Momka color (got from Moretti and More on Etsy) and some Venbead frit. I also wanted to see how small I could get the spacers. I love the redish purple with a bluish haze. Wish the pictures weren't quite so dark and showed the true colors better.

PS-Love what you all are doing....but I really LOVE the dragons!!!!!

Jeanne - so glad you showed your work - looks great! JJglass - I love the jellyfish - I've always wondered how to do that - would you mind explaining? Wow - KimV - I am so jealous. I would love to take a class with John Kobuki - maybe someday!

Hey Sandy, thanks , and Kobuki rocks. nuff said.

For the jelly, I blew a bubble on a 30 mm medium wall tube and opened the end. I fumed the inside of the tube and drew a ring around the inside with a 4mm rod. I fumed it again and laid some lines down with a 2 mm and 4 mm rod. I close up the tube and start to condense it down. Once it is condensed and the bottom of the tube is near the top of the head, I use suction to pull the head together and draw the tentacles into the center of the body. At that point you have to rip off the jelly from the tube and finish up the marble. Hope this helps

Here's one of the pendants that I made using JK's flowers technique. The others that I made all have way too many bubbles. Today's focus at the torch will be to see if I can lessen the amount of those

Kim, that pendant is beautiful! And I LOVE the dragons!!!

Here's a simple set of discs using an odd lot I got from Momka at the GAS conference vendors area. I'm in love! Of course I am, it's a glass I probably won't be able to get again, lol.

What's unfinished about it? That is simply the most realistic and awesome thing I have seen.....one of these days, I hope to make things that good.

I ordered my oven and am working on getting a ventilation system and oxygen tanks....I hope to be set up by the end of the month. In the meantime, I'll continue to take lessons once a week. It will be so nice when I can say that I made things by myself. I'm picking up my glass I made last week in a split class/work session on Tuesday at my next class, and I can truthfully say that at least two or three (forget how many I made) I made all by myself, including the loop. I don't consider it truly mine, if my instructor does any of the finish work on it. I know I did at least two flower pendents which turned out great, and a encased flower (which I'm pretty sure didn't turn out the way I intended).

Now that's the kind of thing I want to learn how to make. Who is JK and where can I find her/his technique? I tried something like that last week and I'm almost sure it did not turn out at all.

John Kobuki. He is a master of the compression style. you can go here to see his stuff:

http://www.kobukiglass.com/

If you ever get a chance, take a class with him, night and day difference afterwards plus he's just a good guy.
