creating emubeads

Heating glass is a slow process.
The gentle warm up
and a glowing blob of glass is ready to form.

The skill of the artisan is
knowing the limitations of the material
and, when to push a bit more.

Making glass beads involves a conversation with the flame, the glass and the inclusions of precious and found metals. Metals oxidise between the layers of glass creating bubbles.
The universe captured in a bead, the micro of the macro.

Bead making is the journey of following my passion.
