One of the highlights of the GBUK AGM a couple of weeks ago was the opportunity to take a free class. Last year, I did silver clay, this year it was using seed beading to form a bezel around a lampwork cabochon to turn it into a pendant.
The class was run by the lovely and infinitely patient Carol Passaro, and the first thing to do was chose a tin as each one had a different colour combination in it. Colours chosen, thread cut and conditioned, we settled down to work. I don’t think I have ever heard a bunch of lampworkers be so quiet! The concentration was palpable.
I was so thrilled with the result, it looks really good and I’ve done very little seed beading before.
So now, I have to make some cabochons of my own and get beading!
