Stephanie White showed us how to create lovely beads from recycled glass.  She turned coke and beer bottles into rods and then beautiful beads! 

Several attendees broke a bottle and made a few rods for themselves.  Can't wait to see their beads!!

First, clean and break the bottle.  Put pieces in the kiln to heat.

 

 
 

It may be safer to stand when introducing the glass to the flame.

 
   

 

Stephanie melts and shapes the glass pieces, taking care not to introduce bubbles.
