Some beads just need to be revived.....
The Glyph Series beads were made during fall 2006 - winter 2007. Sometimes I stop making beads just because I get interested in something else. Looking at this bead, I wonder why. This is a great bead - except it's stuck to the mandrel. I've tried everything to get it off.
Using denture cleaner to fizz it off.
Yep, freezing it. It works sometimes because it shrinks the metal mandrel just slightly so you can pull off the bead.
Nothing is worked but I couldn't throw it out.
It reminds me, "remember? You liked this style of bead, make me again!"
Ok, ok, ok, so it isn't really talking to me, but it's definitely a bead that needs to be revived.
Have you made a bead, sculpture or piece of jewelry that you think needs to be revived? Share with me something that you've revived!
