For a while I was having trouble with the bead release on the mandrels. It either kept chipping and cracking or the glass wouldn't stick.
Finally I was able to make some beads again, probably a few weeks ago, but I hadn't taken any picutures of them because I haven't been able to get them off the mandrels. So, I haven't made anything since either.
Some more not so great beads
Twisties I made a while ago, and used for some of the bead above
