Mine plays just fine on my laptop... i had them professionally done... no home made copies here... if it doesn't work on your laptop, I'd even be willing to take it back and refund it... how's that for a guarantee?

pics pics pics...

Now for more practice tomorrow.

I have no idea what the schedule is in Celsius... I'll try to sort that out for you...

For soft glass punties, it's similar to boro, but you don't need the tip of the piece you're attaching to be super hot... just soft and tacky... the heart or other off mandrel piece should be warm, but hard... the best way to practice is with two rods... not a piece you're working on... once you get it sorted out, then you can start using the tech to make pendants with out ruining them.

Brent, thank you so much for posting the Mr. Smiley Heart tutorial! And thanks to everyone who has posted pictures of their Mr. Smiley Hearts! I've had so much fun looking through all of the pictures and posts. These are so fun to make! Here are some that I've made. These are my 5th, 6th, & 7th attempts (1-4 didn't turn out so well).
