Southern Flames Explores Double Helix Oracle Black!!


Oracle Black is one of Double Helix's newest glasses, and is said to remain stable on striking colors, but react with the luster/reducing glass colors.

Lynn Short has been playing with this new glass, and is comparing results using Oracle, Richenbach Deep Black, and Effetre Black.  She'll bring and discuss findings from her recent experiments and will provide a demo using the glass.

Special!  Beads of Courage Drawings!!! 


Southern Flames is participating in a bead-of the month Beads of Courage program, receiving a new bead each month.  Starting at the October meeting, attending members will be given a chance at the drawing, and those bringing a BOC donation will be given an additional chance at that month's bead!   So come to the meeting, and you may win one of these fun beads:





Bead Challenge!!


Beads of Courage needs beads!!  Bring some to the meeting!  Your name will be entered for the monthly drawing for a bead from the BOC Bead of the Month Program described above.

Make your BOC beads on a 3/32" or larger mandrel and have no sharp edges.  Do not use reduction glass, frits, powders or enamels that leave a metallic surface on the beads.  Be sure they're fully annealed and cleaned. 

Children love fun beads in bright colors - but will appreciate any we donate!  Check out their link: and our SF page for more info. 

 Have fun and develop your skills!

  • TOOLS FOR TORCHTIME Southern Flames is asking members who may have duplicate or unused tools to donate them to our Torch-time area.  This is the place in Beads by Design with torches that SF Members can rent.  The donation of tools will make it easier for new beadmakers who have not yet purchased tools, or don't know what to purchase to work.



REMINDER: We love animals but for safety reasons we cannot have them at SF meetings or SF Sponsored Events.
