View Full Version : Newbie's 2nd time at the torch

04-05-2004, 05:06 PM
I just wanted to take a moment and share my work. I know that it is not as good as those Wet Canvas Minoins. :) But I am pretty proud of it for being my first time. I have actually been at the torch two more time since then and I can clearly see an improvement. I welcome comments and critiques of course.

You have the touch!

Not only did you pick a really great set of colors and create a unified set, but you managed multiple bead techniques such a dot placement and stringer control--ON YOUR SECOND TORCHING SESSION! WOW!

Keep up the excellent work!

WOW WOW WOW!!!! Those are fantastic beads! You really have a knack for it. Some folks do, and others struggle a little more. But even with a glassy bent, it's Practice Practice Practice that will make all the difference in the end.

Glad to have you join us, and thank you for sharing. You are very talented!

Thank all for your comments. I have to admit that I had looked at a lot of pieces of jewelry and wanted most of my pieces to be able to go in them. I figured if I worked with 2 or 3 colors I could not go wrong. :) I can't wait to post my third torch piece. It is turquoise, ivory and black. I am so excited. I am ordering my 30# mapp gas tank tomorrow. :clap:
