I made off mandrel hearts that are actually big enough to wear and have a functioning loop, woo hoo!
And I blew my first ever successful shard bulb! I know, five and a half years of beadmaking and I couldn't blow shards, shocking isn't it - but I did it, and hopefully I'll be able to do it again. Today I will see if the shards I made are actually usable.
