Default My First Attempt At Mary's Turtle

Today was my first attempt at Mary Lockwood's Turtle. I bought her tutorial when i thought of this project and don't regret it one bit. Super simple to follow, and so's fabulous!!

Too bad the unlabeled rod that looked like amber was actually transparent red or pink of some type.

My fins and head are too big, but I'm happy with this monster of a bead. It didn't crack when i was making it which is good cause I have never had that much glass at the end of my stick it's in the kiln hopefully cooking nicely and not cracking.

I don't have a big kiln yet, so the mini devarti annealer will have to do. Just hope i can figure out timing for cooking it.

Can't wait to do another..but only one at a time will fit in the kiln till my Glass-hive gets here.
