The New Torch.. First beads:Feeling like a newbie again!

Hi , I've been a busy girl... setting up this bad boy.. aka "big girl torch" It is a mini CC for those of you who do not torch , by Carlisle.

From the day I began torching on a Hot head torch.. I have loved this activity of melting glass.. and creating.. I had never had the opportunity to try anything different So with alot of research and asking other lampwork artist, I made a decision. Really not knowing if I would like it.. I LOVE it..

It is so quiet, and easy to use. Faster in melting glass, and the colors are fabulous! I am still working on the control of the glass, I have only had 2 major melt downs and a pile of glass on my desk.

To see my first batch of beads scroll down.. Now i just to find my muse.. and get a creating.

A couple of scenery beads , and dots and dots galore. And a few organic focals with an occasional floral. I'm very happy with my new toy... :-)
