I had the honor to present at the annual International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) Gathering conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, last month. The topic, of-course, was on working with silver glass. When I presented five years ago at the ISGB Gathering conference in Louisville, Kentucky, I did it on one of my signature series at that time: Abyss and Torrent. This time, I thought a basic presentation on how to work the silver glasses – striking, reducing, and combination (both striking and reducing) – is more valuable to the attendees.
Such an invaluable resource is worthless stuck as a PowerPoint presentation on my computer hard drive however. Thus I took a little time and put the presentation in its entirety, including three video demonstrations, on my website!
I have also included a Donate button for the ISGB. To all my glassy friends: if you find the presentation helpful, please consider giving a small donation to the ISGB for without its conference, I’d never have put this together in the first place!
Please note that there is no sound – only the PowerPoint presentation reformatted and the video demonstrations – for the original presentation was not taped.
