My first big wheel bead

I hadn't been able to get to the torch for a while, allotment needed some attention and that always tires me out.

So was quite pleased when I got to have a go last night. But no mojo, the first two beads I made were horrible.

I bought some big hole mandrels at Flame Off and I had one left sitting there having been dipped in bead release for probably a few months and thought why not have a go at a big wheel like the gorgeous ones that Jennie makes from Raspberrry Rings.

It was a bit dodgy to start with and it's not perfectly round. Struggled a bit as the mandrel seems to be bent. But quite pleased for a first attempt.

It measures a whopping 4.5cm.
