Firewalk challenge beads
« on: July 12, 2013, 05:45:58 PM »
Hi ya guys,
way back in December 2011 John and Sarah at BCCA asked me if I would to help to organise some special lampwork bead making for an exciting event - a walk across hot coals to raise funds for BCCA. There was quite a bit of red tape to work through and then all permits and permissions got suspended until after the Olympics. Anyhow I am so pleased to be able to let you guys know that the Firewalk has finally got the go ahead and will be on

Saturday 12th October 2013
at Selex Sports & Leisure Club, Basildon.




In a nutshell, there are going to be 100 people walking across hot coals to raise funds for BoC. Each person will carrying a pair of beads, one bead to keep and one bead to give to a child in the BoC program with a special personal note. This is where you guys come in, I am hoping to find 7 volunteers to make firewalk beads and I have 7 little boxes of glassy goodies to give away to make them with.

The beads need to be matched pairs, annealed and cleaned, photographed for the thread here so we can have a lovely gallery of all the beads together and then sent straight to Sarah at BCCA for the firewalk.

In each goody box there are 1/2 rods of Hades, Sangre, Lipstick, Clockwork, Hollandaise and Pumpkin all donated by Kathy Seamands from Creation is Messy and 5 pieces of flat cane that I have made for you



If you would like to make and donate some beads for the firewalkers to carry please send me a message.

Here is some more info on the BCCA website - http://www.bechildcanceraware.org/firewalk/

Thank you Jo xx
