Purple Tigers!

When I first read Corina's Tutorial (in her book, Passing the Flame) years ago, the FIRST thing I tried to do with it was make a PURPLE tiger. I failed miserably. And I was kind of afraid of tiger beads ever since!

It's amazing what a few years of sitting my rear end behind a torch can do for improving my skills! Not only have my casing skills vastly improved, I now have an innate understanding of the purpose of each layer of glass required to build this type of bead! And suddenly, I had an got where I went wrong on my purple tigers.

These are two more of the "side roads" I took while working on my tiger bead project:

These will be added to my glass beads website in a day or two!
