Awww, shucks, guys!

Some of my favorite lampworkers give out their tuts for free, and I love them for that. How can I not reciprocate???

Besides, it so fun to share! :) Can't wait to see your pix!

Hugs,

Debby

Thanks so much Debby for being so generous in sharing this great tut!:clap: :clap: :clap: I just printed it out for my own "Beside the torch" help, & wanted to suggest that you might want to consider numbering the pages. I got a little confused just by looking at the photos, but maybe that's just me & my craziness!:rolleyes: This tut has already sparked so many deviations in my mind!:cool: You are so great for being so giving!:thumbsup: Consider yourself hugged!:grouphug:
Colour me happy & inspired to go try something new,:D

Excellent tutorial! I like how you included basic lampworking tips (heat mandrel to avoid bubbles, etc.) along the way. I can't wait to try this! Thank you so much!!

I click the link and it brings me to a site trying to sell me the domain for starlight beads ... I really want to see the tut and can't . Am I doing something wrong ?

yeah i noticed how long ago it was posted i just thought id ask to see if anyone had the pdf still saved or something. i really wanted to see the tut. would be great to add to my skill set. ive looked elsewhere but it always ends up bringing me to this archive that no longer exists. :( oh well , maybe someone will post a new one sometime soon i hope. allot of the tuts ive found here were posted way back in 09 or even earlier. wish i wouldve started back then.
