Summer!

Posted in Artists, Lampwork by paccorinti on June 19, 2013

School’s out and it’s time to learn new things. I have wanted to learn lampworking for ages and my friend, Maureen, found a wonderful teacher in nearby Gilroy. Jelveh Jaferian has been a lampwork artist for thirteen years. Her work is amazing! Maureen, two other friends and I signed up for a 5 hour beginning class and learned the basics of lampwork bead making. We had so much fun. Jelveh is a hoot! She showed us so much in that 5 hours that we left with our heads swimming with so much information. We returned on Monday to pick up our beads and to spend a couple more hours at the torch. It is definitely my new “addiction”!

I will take some pictures of my beads when I get a few more done and post them. This is definitely one skill that will take lots of practice to become proficient.
