More Luminobeads

Lampwork Glass BeadsI told you that I had lots of these in the pipeline .....

I suffered a random beadmaking injury today. I was placing a dot on a bead and I put it in the wrong place. This happens often and I undo the bad dot placement by nipping off the raised dot of glass with tweezers which is exactly what I did but the piece of glass that I tweezed off shot straight up my left nostril. That sounds funny, I know, but it flippin' hurt! Hot glass and noses do not mix. I was kind of half-laughing, half-yelping and my eyes were watering like mad. What a crazy thing to happen! I did manage to save the bead I was working on, though. Result.

Bravo for saving the bead under extreme duress!!! I burnt my hand once and was not as fortunate to save the bead.

Yes, I've suffered many a cut or burn while I've been mid-bead but I always do my best to save the bead! You spend so long making them that you don't want to lose them do you?!
