My student's fun with raking

Frances has been studying with me for two or three years now, and has finally achieved the ultimate goal: she's become my peer, in that she now has skills that I do not—for example she can make beautiful consistent spacers—I tried that this weekend at the guild meeting this weekend the results, shall we say, were embarrassing.

five raked black and white beads.

Like me Frances enjoys making functional beads, that can be used in jewelry or other projects. This particular lot was an experiment using very minimal color schemes, as well as heat control.
