2006's Valentine Hearts
featured in...February 2015

Lampworked hollow hearts, in assorted bullseye, czech and effetre soda-lime glasses, using gravity swirl, scrolling and leaf application techniques.

Not a lot to say about this test post from, um, 9 years ago. It was created in November, but the beads were shot almost exactly 9 years ago, on 31jan06; and given the theme—hearts—probably manufactured shortly before. These were, as the file name suggests, conceived by my partner, as production designer beads meant to be incorporated into finished pieces. They're not real exciting, but I think they've held up reasonably well.
