I've discovered that I most enjoy the fine detail work of using "stringers" to create my floral beads. Both sides of the beads have different flowers and in a set I don't repeat a flower.In the box lids are some of these finely pulled strands of glass. They are thinner than spagettinni!!! To make them I pull a very hot blob of glass with tweezers in opposing directions until it is as thin as possible.

These miniature garden beads have become my trademark. Now I only make a set each month because they are so time intensive.
