Glass Beads

I have wanted to try my hand at glass for the past few years. This weekend I got my chance when I took a glass bead making class at the Eugene Glass School (www.eugeneglassschool.org). I had a blast and have to be careful not to become swept away with this addictive art form. Here are a few of my first attempts. Of course, now I need to find out how to take decent pictures of these things.

I like beads. They are shiny and have pretty colors.

Hey Don, next time you're in Italy, make sure you get to Morano (off Venice) It's a dream come true to any bead connoisseur.
But guess who invented glass beads..?

Hmmmm.... according to Wikipedia, glass beads started in Egypt! But I think you knew that. ;)
