Chocolates and lentils!

Not an obvious combination, even though I am vegan!!!!

But, these are not edible, they are my latest glass lampwork beads, created at the flame.

First of all, a fun set of glass chocolates! These would look great displayed in a glass dish, and you'll not put the pounds on your hips!

And then lentils! These are actually circular focal beads, shaped with a lentil press. They make great pendants.

And finally, I followed a tutorial in the Soda Lime Times digital magazine, and finally got some colour out of my "magic" glass in these long and lean tubes. It's always great to master a new glass.

I've also turned some of my lampies into jewellery, but that's for another day.....
