Make your own wearable glass pendant and earring bead set.

Using borosilicate rods of clear and coloured glass, you will melt and manipulate the glass in the flame to create one of a kind pendants. Then you will you learn the basic skill of wrapping glass around a mandrel to create glass beads with a hole. These two separate skills will create a unified glass jewellery set.
