A Lampworkers Gathering

Yesterday, Beadfx hosted a gathering of lampworkers. People, including my sister Janine and me, started arriving around 4:30 p.m., although I must admit I spent some time shopping before joining the people gathering in the studio. The Dixon Chick was teaching one of her wire crochet classes at the store, which finished up at 5, and then she joined us as well, ready to hang out and begin celebrating her birthday (which is today, Happy Birthday Stephanie!!!).

Dwyn demonstrated a new machine that Nortel has available, used for adding metal liners to lampwork beads. Here's a picture of her and Peter discussing the machine (okay, I admit it, I wasn't paying enough attention to remember the name of the thing!):

Here's a photo of Erin (AirWynn Glass Designs), Stephanie (The Dixon Chick) and myself (Cynful Creations), taken by my sister Janine:

It was a fun outing, with pizza, cookies, lots of conversation and exchanging of ideas about glass and beads. Many thanks to Beadfx for hosting the event. I look forward to attending the next one!

Oh that's exciting you can make your own pandora type bracelets now? Cool.
