Words of warning...not for the squimish...
How about going downstairs to get your beads out of the kiln, pulling out the mandrels... and finding these things in there.
This is what happens when you go away and you leave your (non-lampworking) DH at home for a couple of hours. Usually he shows little interest beyond admiring my finished work...but while I went shopping for a bit...between basketball games on TV he decided to light my torch and goof around for an hour to see what lampworking was like.
Thought you all might get a good laugh.
