I am not showing my first, second, third, fourth, and maybe forever attempts.  I can't make a round bead to save my life. How are you doing with yours?

If those are your 1st and 2 pieces of lampwork beads - keep going! 

Like many others, lampwork is something I'd like to try - along with..........................
so, you need to put those in a kiln afterwards right????

do you know if the kilns that you can put in the microwave would work for the lampwork beads?

no, i'm not aware of that, i heard that if you make really small ones you can put them in a crock pot? I thnink maybe the one you are referring to is for fusing, i have seen info on that but haven't heard great results. The studio where i have been working has a kiln, that's what i have been using.

Kris:

The lampworking kit I bought at Hobby Lobby comes with a blanket that you lay the beads in.  The whole set originally is 99.96 and with the 40% off coupon, I got it for 63 something with tax.  That is the only reason I bought it.  The mapp gas canister costs 7.95 at Home Depot.  That is a fairly inexpensive way to start.  The only thing is, don't go crazy at the glass store buying rods of every color.
