Beads of Courage Flame Day

The SoCal Flame Surfers sponsored a Flame Day last Saturday for volunteers to come and make large glass beads for Beads of Courage. Donna Conklin, owner of The Mandrel, provided the space, gas and torches.

 Here's Donna working on a mushroom bead:

 This is Kathy working on a caterpillar bead:

 And here's Charlie Warner working on a garden critter:
Notice all the toys on the table??? They are there for inspiration! We also had pages of coloring books taped on the walls. Kid stuff is great inspiration as the drawings and toys are usually in the simplest form!!

We made over 70 large beads in 4 hours!
