Introducing myself

Hi all,
I have been encouraged to introduce myself and my art to you. I am a lampwork artist. In other words, I make glass beads by melting rods of glass with a high heat torch. About 2 years ago, a customer lost her beloved dog and asked me if I could infuse some of her dogs cremation ash into a bead. I did a little research and taught myself how to make beautiful cremation beads. My business continues to grow, and mostly by word of mouth. So, I'm here to share this news, and to participate in your forum as a dog lover. I lost my little "Rudy" (same as my username) in 2001 and this process continues to be a source of healing for me. Anyway, can anyone give me some advice on where to post more detailed information and details about my beads? Thanks in advance. BTW: I never know that these types of forums existed!

It all started with my love for glass. I had been making glass beads and jewelry and one of my customers asked me if I could infuse her dogs ashes in a bead. I made my first sample beads with what was left of my Rudy's ashes. The rest is history and I love that I keep her memory alive every time I show off her beads. It's been quite the adventure!

One quick thing before I head to bed...looks like I did a no...no...and please forgive me! It seems that noting my website is not allowed. I have already c
Sent an email to the administrators about advertising. I hope I can afford it. Also, for those that pm'd me, the system will not allow me to reply until I have a few more posts so I'll have to get back to you ... Sorry. However, I will note that I have made needs with both pet & human cremains (separately!).
