So Bechte & I are enjoying the hospitality of “Apprentice” weekend at the home of Alan & Rigela, with 3 apprentices and 2 proteges, and 3 spouses, and one teenager.  Bechte made cheesecake this morning, and then she & I both worked on beads this afternoon.  This is the first time Bechte has done any lampworking.

She made 36 today – and it’s pretty awesome.  Smallest is about 3mm x 4mm, largest is 18mm x 16mm.  The tiny blue beads each have 3 tiny white dots.

Not bad for the first time.
