Beads–an epiphany

beadsI made these beads during the core formed vessel workshop while I was waiting for a demo to begin.  I’ve been practicing the dots and masking techniques, reasoning that these are the foundation of most lampworking techniques.  I’ve found that I often have a hard time placing the dots accurately, as my hands shake.  Was I too weak?  Was I nervous?

Then I remembered I’d had a large iced tea in the morning, and a large soda at lunch. Ah ha!  Next time, plenty of sleep and no chemical stimulation beyond the basic necessity.
