My most essential tool…

Is this pair of long tweezers!  These tweezers are used every single time I have to make a bead from recycled glass.

You see, I have to warm the glass up on a hotplate before I put it into the flame. Glass is a bit temperamental, it doesn’t like to heat up or cool down too quickly. Warming the glass on a hotplate allows me to introduce the glass to the flame when it’s warm, meaning it’s less likely to explode!

This pair of earrings features beads made from a Bombay Sapphire Gin bottle (and my favourite orange cup for contrast)! They are super long, and a more rounded version of this pair that I made the other day.
