My Trip to Toronto

I have been lazy in posting to the blog over the last couple of weeks.. and I am sorry. I have been on the road for both the day job, but I did have the weekend to have some fun along the way!

I spent last Saturday morning at Nortel Manufacturing visiting with the torch designer extraordinaire, Peter Norton. I am amazed each time I visit, as Peter is so kind to pick me up at the RT train stop and escort me to the shop.
I could spend hours looking at all the glass canes to choose from. Always lots of selection and Peter and Jean are so friendly, it feels like coming home to visit family each and every time.
My rule when I visit is to "try not to max out the credit card"! This time was a big order, but came under the wire (ha ha).
Peter took the time to show me the new bead liner tool that he has almost ready for release. It looks amazing and I can't wait to see it in action in future. Also got to see a new torch under testing, the power of it, well I am speechless.. plus I shouldn't tell anyway! ha ha

I returned back home late last night with pounds of glass, carefully stowed in my carry on and lots of new reduction frit, bead release so this weekend will be a full torching to get new sets ready for both my e-bay listings and artfire studio.

Currently, the last couple of sets of beads remaining in my artfire studio are 25% until further notice. The link to artfire is on the right hand side of my blog.

Until new pictures to post, enjoy the spring weather!
