Melting Pot Beads - Suze Weinbrrg

I bought this little beauty at Graphicus after seeing it demo'd on Friday
I have to say it is a learning curve as I have burnt fingers and at one point even managed to burn and discolour the UTEE.
However I persevered and ended up with some pretty unusual bead charms see images below.
I will now invest in more colours of UTEE to satisfy my craze.


A few of the beads I made with the Melting Pot

Wowsers,
they are stunning,
What beautiful necklaces etc that can be made from these, they would look stunning on a bootlace.

Finished result looks good Jak, but don't think this technique is for me! I tried to watch a demmo at Port Sunlight yesterday but the woman doing it was far to engrosed in another conversation with two other women that she was taking an age to get started so quite a few of us walked away in the end!

Beads are looking good Jak, saw a demo & they just added ordinary coloured embossing powder to the melting pot with the UTEE then you get to make any colour combo you want...

These beads are lovely. I to couldn't resist buying the melting pot. I was over there on Saturday and it was made to look so easy. I played with the paper beads yesterday and was pleased with the results. Your daughter has a beautiful voice. Debbie M.

Those beads are great and something I've been intending to try for ages - maybe you have inspired me!!

Hi, saw the melting pot and Suze demo-ing on QVC a couple of months ago and was very tempted to get it - haven't done so yet but it is on my wishlist.

Hi Jak

Wow! Your beads are fabulous! I do hope you show us how to make them. Hoping it involves melting the dust in my Melting Pot Ü I, too, burned my fingers when I first used my pot and I haven't touched it since. I'd be willing to try it again if I could make beads like yours...hint, hint Ü
