Here's the first picture of the mighty blacksmith at work. This was taken seconds before the smoke alarm went off throughout the whole bead cottage. "eh eh eh evacuate smoke evacuate! eh eh eh evacuate smoke evacuate!" Good thing it doesn't call the fire department. We need to have a small fan put in the line to draw the smoke up the chimney better.
Here's a shot of most of the smoke going through the chimney.
And this is a bead I made that same day. I really like how it turned out. There's a lot of depth and even some iridescence on the surface.
