Bastille Bleu, has started selling her own handmade twistie in her bead shop on Etsy. This stuff is fantastic to work with! It's straight as a pin, a nice long length and runs about 3-4mm, so it's not a big fat thing that you need to stretch out in order to fit on your bead, which tends to distort the pattern.
My beads pictured here are all made with her handpulled twistie! Until I can make my own decent twistie, I will continue to buy hers! Nikki is a completely self taught lampwork artist, which, let me tell you, is no small accomplishment! Her skills continue to evolve and expand on a daily basis and I am always amazed at what she comes up with. I would have never probably made it very far in this craft if I had gone the self taught route!
shop and see what she has to offer. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is also one of the nicest people you could ever run across! Thanks for stopping by my blog... Have a great day!
