So a new year and the beginning of experiments in the form of glass faceted bead trees! It occurrd to me to give this a try after spending the whole of 2016 making wire only trees. Immediately I noticed a few things, the creation process is opposite to how I make wire only trees; wire only I go root to tip vs beads are tip/ bead to root. This caused a few issues but a new custom tool has helped the process. Also the glass beads are pretty tough on the fingers and I am only now building up calluses to help with this problem. I think I will keep…
