We have some mandrels and will have them pre-dipped. We would love to have some more if anyone wants to donate some. We have all of our BOC Challenge supplies kept and used only for Beads of Courage. Beads of Courage has sent some logo items for prizes too. If you won a BOC tee shirt at the last Challenge or already have a BOC tee shirt, be sure to wear it!
We will take lots of pics and I will have someone with some computer skills post them.

Do you guys have any particular "theme" in mind? Meaning are you in need of anything specific such as Purple Hearts? I'm gonna try and make it to the session, but if I can't I'm definitely going to make a run of beads especially for BOC using my latest Muppets Murrini.

And how does one "win" any of the prizes? Just curious (meaning, GAME ON!)

Dee,
we will be happy to light your torch, or how about bringing your hot head if that makes you more comfortable? The torching area at Pacific Art Glass is roomy enough to expand our torch numbers. We could have an entire hot head crew!

hi Karen,

You can make anything you want! and definitely, if you want to do all purple hearts, that would be wonderful! The SCFS club purchased some mandrels, but we can always use the extra.
I don't think there will be any donuts

Oh, thanks for the reply! I just may pack my Hot Head just in case I'm too intimidated by the oxy/fuel ones!

So here's another question for y'all...

I'm figuring there will be kilns set up, right? Any idea what type, and will they have bead doors? I know - weird question! But..................I make some pretty cute "Smiley" style hearts, but they require me to make a small spacer "donut" which I garage while making the off-mandrel Heart. I then pull the spacer outta the kiln, attach it to the heart, then still the whole Magilla-Gorilla back in for annealling!
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
They sure come out cute and I'd love to do this style if possible. If not, though, I can bring my new "Hearts and Grooves" press I got from Mag at GoodGlassCo., which does both horizontal and vertical hole hearts - I'll just need to be ready with dipped smaller diameter mandrels. If possible, I'd like to do both. And I'm bringing Purple glass and some cute murrini!!!

If I have time, I'm going to pull some Purple Heart Murrini just to share with everyone!!!

Sounds wonderful De- I was going to bring some generic ones too for people to use. I think the kiln may not be big enough unless you're one of the ones 1st there. But they sound beautiful, have you ever posted any??
Sounds like we have a blast. We may have to ask John for another table for more room!

Karrina~

My "Smiley" style hearts can be seen in this thread, starting at post #248 (Page 9) - after that, as you can see, I get kinda crazy with posting 'em! I love to make them!!!

What a FANTASTIC challenge day we had! Thanks to everyone (18 total) who came out and helped make our day a success! And many thanks to John Williams of Pacific Art Glass (even though he doesn't read this) for hosting the challenge once again. I don't know how many beads we got made, but it is definitely more than last time! I will pick them up on monday and post a pic. What fun!

We'll do another in a few months, maybe Oct. We'll let you know!

Cheers~

It was a fun day and was great to see so many people show up to make beads for this great organization! Don't forget to cast you daily vote in the Pepsi Challenge and get all your friends and family to vote also.
