Show Me Sunday with Rebecca of Songbead

Happy Sunday folks! It's back to school month.....and I've been on the search for tutorials, books, and projects....

Here's a tute I found, from amazing lampwork artist Helen Chalmers - aimed at both intermediate and beginner lampworkers. 

If I had any glass skills, this would be on my shopping list! Until I do, I'll just have to keep buying from Helen :-)
