Slider Beads...simple lampwork for everyday wear.

I've been working on some everyday beads. Beads that can be dressed up or worn on the weekend. Since in Texas you can literally cook an egg on the sidewalk in summer, I wanted to make beads that were not hot to wear. This is one of the designs that I've come up with. These are large hole beads that fit on a chain or silk ribbon. Easy to change and easy to wear.

The below focal was an experiment with reduction glasses. It turned out pretty well except the reduction areas of the bead are tough to photograph.
That's it for me...I'm off to the studio today. Got lot to do...actually, I've got lots of beads to clean.

Have a great weekend!
