Melting sticks of glass into beads. Saffire Bead & Flameworks. Panorama, B.C.
While we were in Panorama, my sister-in-law registered a few of us to take a glass bead-making class. Unsure of what to expect, I went with her and two of my brothers-in-law to the three-hour class on Monday morning. And after making my first bead, I was hooked. It was so much fun.
I was terrible at making round or uniform beads and went with a more organic look, i.e. very rock-shaped. But I think they turned out pretty well! And I even made a necklace for Alice out of three of the fifteen or so beads that I made.
If you ever have the opportunity to take a class like this (or you find yourself at Saffire Bead & Flameworks in Panorama, B.C.), I highly recommend it!
