I taught a great student yesterday in a beginning lampwork class. Cicily is a natural! Here are her very first beads!


Can you tell she's not afraid of the glass? The longest bead is 2 1/2" long and there's not a crack anywhere in it. She has an amazing sense of the heat in a bead.

Holy cow! Those are amazing! I was so afraid of the long bead for sooo long.

I am so impressed.

I'm agog.

Thanks everyone! She really did not need much from me to make these wonderful beads. In fact, she was such a quick study that she had the last two hours of the day to play on her own.

I sent her the link to this thread, so I hope she signs on and introduces herself.

Bearglass, I live in South Dakota, near the Black Hills, so I'm rather far away from CA. If you're ever out looking at Mount Rushmore, stop in.

You must be a great teacher!
No doubt she is gifted, but you brought it out well.
You can see by the shape that her control is VERY good for a first timer, However, I can tell by the patterns that there is a lot of YOUR instruction in it.

Well Done!!!
