I think it would be really nice to have a memorial section on LE for those we miss. And so many of our new peeps don't know them, but could see why we miss them so much. It would be a special place to leave comments like this. Just an idea...

I feel like I missed out on getting to know her better. I took it for granted that she'd always be here. I do that too often.

Nice job Mina, I think you need to burn all the silver in so that you can only see little drops on the surface then switch your flame to a reducing flame. If you are on a Hothead cover the holes on the torch with foil flash your bead in the flame then cover with clear.

Yes I think that's right I am not sure if you need to reduce or not. It doesn't say so in the directions.

4. Apply more threaded clear stringer.
5. Melt in slowly, watching for the robin's egg blue reaction.
6. Case with clear, keeping the base bead out of the flame.

You must be sitting right in your chair, the stars in the right alignment, and holding your mouth right. In other words, this is a really hard chemical reaction to reproduce.

Threaded Stringer

Heat a small gather of glass.
Out of flame, touch the gather to your bead and spin your bead to pull out thin strands of glass.

Do you think you'd get the same effect with another colour? Your bead is beautifull, but I'm not a "blue" person - just wondering if it would work with a lilac, pink or green?

I am so glad I ran across this post. I didn't realize when I posted the first time that she is no longer with us. Very sorry to see we lost such a talented lampworker. She seemed like such a wonderful person from what I have read.

I read this tutorial early on when I was on my HH and didn't try it. I was reminded by the new thread Corri started of people's favorite threads. I am on a mega-minor now and thought I would give it a try. I never knew of the original author until too late but she has left a lovely legacy of friends and of this tutorial that continues to inspire new lampworkers to try her technique. I am very happy with my beads but I definitely do NOT have that stringer technique down.
