I bought a tutorial on shards and have been hooked ever since and have made little else all week. Luckily it's half term, with few commitments, so have had time to experiment with my own colours. Some have worked, some really haven't! As I'm lousy at cleaning beads, they haven't made it as far as the camera yet but I'm getting there.
I've also been trying to come up with a really cool bead for the GBUK ompetition. That hasn't gone quite so well as what is in my head isn't translating so well into glass. Could be I won't be entering this year.
