Blast From The Past – 2006

A long time ago, in a TV far away, I was on an HGTV show called “That’s Clever” where I demonstrated how to make glass beads. It is a little cringe-worthy and cheesy to see them now, but I am posting them to show how glass beads are made.

All beads start off as rods, about the diameter of a pencil. From there, they are melted and wound around a steel mandrel (rod) to create the bead.
