An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

My sister-in-law, Clare Gaylard, is a glass artist who makes wonderful glass beads, amongst other things. Here's a link to her website. Clare showed me how she makes her beads, a magical process using glass rods and a powerful flame - and steady hands! I came home with a collection of beautiful beads that I plan to combine with tatting. I've made a start:
Two bracelets with single beads as the focal point. And a pair of earrings:
The thread for the bracelets is Coats Floretta, size 20, part of a small stash I accumulated from several charity shops in England. At an average cost of 50 pence a ball!
