Glass Making

While making salt, we discovered that we could create some glass items.  We decided to make beads.  It was SO much fun.  After all three of us made beads, Kathleen and Taris created key chains (Taris made mine) and I made a necklace for Taris.  Brace yourselves...more pictures.

Not my best look, but it is one of the few that I am in

Taris starting his bead

Finally built on the rod.  Making it even and smooth

The beads took an hour
