Whats going on in studio this week?

I've joined an Murrini exchange.. such fun to try new things. These are created to add to beads as a design element in a glass bead... a huge gather of glass is created with a design in mind... then when you are ready.. or just plan tired (in my case) you pull this gather.. in to a cane of glass.. the goal is to have this "wonderful " design! My efforts where less than expected.. but thats ok.. this is what being creative is all about. The effort and the time spent are for a good cause... and its all about the learning, and creativity.... So here are my first attempts... certainly not my last attempts.. I will at my next torching session I will "test " drive these murrini's to see what they look like... and will post the pictures here... now don't laugh to loud.. ok? I'm still learning.. :-)
