I have had a go at making twisties before but I haven't had much success with getting a consistent twist. But with some expert tuition I made a very respectable twistie, I can see that this can become equally as addictive as making murrini. I have now invested in a pair of glass cutters!!!
Another item on the list was cabs. Mum and I have seen the cab mandrels at Tuffnell's and always fancied having a go. The skill here is in building up the glass to make a nice even shape without disturbing the bead release on the mandrel.
