Thumbs up BOC night! (Chicagoland) June 16, 2017

Friday evening June 16, at Fine Line in St Charles IL.

I love the BOC program, and at our last faculty meeting I asked if we could dedicate a session (or more) to specifically make BOC beads for donation. This will be our first one.

We have 12 torches, good ventilation, glass donated by Ed Hoys (about 5 pounds), eye wear, mandrels, bead release and basic tools. (graphite, tweezers etc...) I'll also likely bring a bunch of bead rollers.

I'll open the doors at 5, and close them at 9. Can't get there until 7? not a problem! I'm just opening the doors at 5 kind of like an open house.

If you're interested in coming, please e-mail

We're scheduled to be an official host studio for BOC in September, so maybe you can join us then.

Our "trial run" went well. We only had 7 people, but managed to make 66 beads. (I'll post pictures once they're cleaned)

Even though I was a last minute addition, glad I made it! It was a lot of fun to meet everyone and happy to support a good cause when I can. The studio was awesome too. Looking forward to the pic of everybody's work!
