For Valentine's Day!!
Is that LOVE in the air?
It's snowing, there are geese honking overhead, and we have a cozy fire going in the fireplace!
Valentine's Day is coming soon, and for that most romantic of days, I made a hollow lampwork heart bead....now THAT was a labour of love!
I made this hollow beauty with Bullseye Raspberry Creme glass...first as a large round hollow bead, then gently coaxed the sphere into a lovely puffy heart shape. As the hot air inside the glass hollow expands it inflates the heart...just the right amount...like a bubble, if it gets too big or a wall too thin it pops.
Here's where you can find the necklace...it's in my Etsy shop.
