What I've discovered is that my style of bead sets does not lead well to silvered glasses. Having a kiln full of focals doesn't do it for me. The problem is that I like making sets...I like using sets in jewelry designs. So I'm on a mission the next couple of weeks. I'm going to figure out how to merge my glassy style for sets or change my style. The way I figure it is that my style can change way before I can change what silvered glass does. Lampworkers, just as any other medium, is sometimes limited by their raw materials...but in this case, I think it's the lampworker that is limiting herself. :-)
Hope everyone is staying warm and dry! Me, I'm deciding if I want to drive to the studio or not.
