Blog, ever since I was little I’ve loved small things that shine. (Being one myself, ha ha! Sorry.) So of course when I discovered beaded jewelry making, I had to get into it. I love beads. I even wrote an erotic romance story about a bead store (“The Guy from Beadsville,” from Soulful Sex Volume III)...and the combination actually works. But I digress.
A few days later Dan sent me a link to an intro class being held at The Vinery in Madison (Wis.). My wife Laura and I signed up for the four hour class. By the time we were done each of us had made about a dozen beads. Laura and I discussed how we both really enjoyed it, and decided to buy the $100 starter kit which would allow us to continue making beads at home.
Lately I have not had the amount of time to work on glass that I would like. Having a well organized studio will really help with that though.
Thanks Paul, and hopefully the thrill of being an A.O.U.T. on this blog will inspire you! I have no doubt some readers are going to flip over these photos of your work. Let me officially start the rousing chorus that will spread across the nation and the world: “Make more beads, Paul, make more beads!”
