it's sew, I do that to! lol. makeing glass beads is fun. what you do is you have to have your station set up with a torch( a hot head with a mep gas can hooked up to it), have the glass rods in the colours you want to work with ready and you mandril (thats a stainless steel rod to heat up and work the glass with) you light the torch and have at it..
to tell you the truth it's such a long process and you have to take you time.. my beads always come out like crap because i never take my time but i'll get better.. they have things on youtube also if you wanted to see the process. lol i'm terrible at explaining things.
