These beads used to be a mineral water bottle, but then the bottle was broken into shards, the shards cut up into small stripes and these were then made into beads.
A real family project: my daughter drank the sparkling water, my husband cut up the glass and I made the beads ;-)

of some kind and when the bead went into the kiln it looked like a complete failure.

Visiting Manuela and her wonderful and whimsical beads.
While we chatted away, my daughter was inspectiong all her beads and of course we had to buy beads. I chose a dragonfly and my daughter got a kitty bead:
We also visited Dora Schubert and had to spend some money there as well.
She talked me into letting my daughter have a try at lampworking herself...now she is nagging me every day...we will see.
I bought a heart press and we watched some glass demos and then we drove on to Rotterdam which was only about 50km away and did some sightseeing there as well.
