I have been working with boro at every torch session and I have been getting used to the way it flows. It doesn't pop and crackle like soft glass does, which is a plus. At first I couldn't get the beads round but I use my bead roller now and that really helps. The beads are in my Etsy shop.
I also bought a new bead coring machine. It is smaller and I can core beads where I want to. No more being stuck in the basement if I want to core beads. It is the Impress Bead Liner by Art in the Round. It domes cores too so they aren't so flat as with my other machine.
