HGTV Bead Stepouts

After yesterday’s video post from 2006 (including enduring snickers on the Facebook page), I remembered that I still have the bead “stepouts” needed to film the HGTV show.

It looked quick and easy, but filming took all day and I had to pre-make several versions of the beads in progress. I also need to have a few finished versions, because the kiln annealing (to strengthen the glass after forming the bead) takes 8 hours

Here are the beads. Sadly, I can’t find the final wired-up bead. It is either ‘safely tucked away somewhere’ or I sold it. Oh, old age memory…
