Shari:

Love the shard and arrowhead tutorial. I just finished making my first arrowhead last night. Although I did forget to take the instructions downstairs, I love the result of what I remembered. I will post a picture tomorrow. The arrowhead I made was a combination of both your tutorials. I used the salmon colored shards tutorial for the color of my arrowhead. I can't wait to make more shards and arrowheads. I'm keeping the one I made and am going to make myself earrings to match.

wow! Stunning arrowhead, I'm so glad you were able to follow the directions so easily. Little earrings to match would be awesome!

Remember you can make these without using shards. You can create them easily with different color combinations of glass, or frit even. I great opportunity to use up that frit you've all been hording for forever.

Have a base of ivory, or black cover it with silver foil, apply some frit, follow the steps in the tutorial and you'll have a really cool arrowhead.

Keep posting your results, I love seeing what you're making and don't be afraid to sell them either.

Very good Irene!
Well done! The stringer part I have to admit is the hardest.
Remember you dont have to go all the way around. Just start on one side of the bead and end on the other edge, do two rows, then apply string to the other side. this is for the neck wrap part.

As for the long strands start with dots of glass part way down the arrow piece heat up the dots so they're molten, then take your thick stringer and drag it through the dot all the way to the neck of the arrow.

The thicker your string, the easier it is to make the wrap and dangles.

Here is my second one. It was a little bugger though. The mandrel broke lose about half way through so I had to be very careful with the cuts and tilit it down so it would fall off the mandrel.

I've had the same thing happen. You really have to make sure that the area that you are shaping or cutting is quite soft. The less tugging of the bead on the mandrel the less chance you have of loosening the bead release.

But in the end, it's a lovely bead. Great shape and great color in it. Very pretty! I hope you get a good price for it.

Mine still need a little work. I'll keep practicing. I think they're too short and squatty looking myself.
Here are mine in order of how I made them

Great effort Donna!
My suggestion would be to use more glass.
The more glass you use the bigger your arrowhead will be and the longer you can make it, if that's what you prefer.

I like the cuteness of these short ones though LOL!

I have two taken with the camera's flash -- I'm on my sailboat right now. These were done a week ago before we our short trip. I did take one outside in the shade of the sail -- but the ones with the flash turned out better.

The first one I made the large ball of glass and followed the instructions (that I could remember!) Then the next one I wanted really bigger so I made a large glass ball and then started "painting" on more glass -- going from hole to hole -- really building up a large glob of glass which I then melted smooth. And followed the instructions from there. I like working off the mandrel -- having the glass hanging off the end -- there are more options working with the glass this way. I've done a lot of cutting of hot glass for my "trees" -- working my trees off the end of the mandrel is novel approached -- which I'll try when I get back to my darling torch! Next I'll blow the shards -- these arrowheads were made with frit on an ivory base.

This was the first one



This was the second one

Lovely arrowhead Barbara, I'm betting you've made more since the first two, would love to see them.

Yes I've made more -- I love to play with colors. I'll photograph them and post. They get lots of compliments.

I know this is an old post, but I just ordered the arrowhead tutorial and can't wait to receive it. I was wondering (guess I might find out when I get the tut) if I could use a hollow mandrel to blow shards?
I am eyeballing the broken heart tutorial too.

Yes you need a hollow mandrel to blow shards. I've used both a hollow mandrel with a small hole and with the large hole, the mandrels with a large hole make blowing shards much easier.
