Tools for Bead Making

Found some great ideas online to help with bead making and drying... Check out this blog by Sallie Bly.

Since I have over 50 handouts, I decided to share them with readers who would like to know more about how to work with clay. I have students who have come to my studio from as far away as Mexico and Maryland, and I also teach when I am traveling. However, not everyone can fly to the Dallas area or find the classes that they want locally.

A tutorial for making ceramic beads to cover with silver metal clay, by Sallie Bly.

Can you guess what these are for?
 Here's a hint...
And what about those straws??

They burn out! But are not strong enough to break the bead and you don't have to remove them.
