If you hate cleaning out the release from lampwork bead holes as much as I do, you will probably be more than eager to learn how to work off mandrel.
Glass artist, sometimes starving sometimes not. Full time glass artist residing in the great city of Chicago. I create miniture works of art using glass and a torch. Most of my work consists of beads, pendants, and marbles. On the rare occasion you will also find me dabbling in the fusing kiln making plates, coasters, or tea light luminaries. www.AvenueBeads.com
