Amanda Macgregor
Loanhead, midlothian. Scotland


I am a lampwork bead maker firstly but am venturing into silver
jewelery to complement my beads. I have learned everything I know
from books and online so there are huge gaps in my knowledge!

I live in Scotland with my husband and 3 dogs.

Theres not an awful lot more to add at this point!!

Lorraine Elaine Inglis
Sydney, NSW. Australia

I am only a student of senior years, who took it up on retirement as
one of the fun things to enjoy. I am finding all kinds of skills
challenging. Last term I tried to copy the flat kind of Asante
beads. The wax is fun and I can see could lead in all directions,
but I had lots of problems with what I had cast. Many of the "beads’
came back, broken in the centre of the "tube’. I varied techniques,
but could not pin down what I was doing wrong, and my tutor at the
community college hadn’t tried it, and couldn’t help. The new term
has started, so I will try again. and might try a different place
for the casting. Would bronze be better than brass? Does anyone have
some info on the process?
