Well after not really feeling like making beads... my kiln is now full!!!!! YAY!!!! Few... thank goodness for that...!!! I started off the day and made about 10 beads... and they all went in the vermiculite! cuz they well CRAP! so that wasn't a good start to the day, so I decided to make easy beads.... I am very pleased with them. Can't wait to wake up in the morning, see them!!! YAY!
