Thumbs down lamporkers mandrels for glassblowing

Hi out there.. I was hoping someone could direct me in the lampworker/glassblowing technique. I bought lampworker mandrels with a hole in the side to be able to blow hollow beads. Don't know of anyone who really does this and was wondering if anyone can direct me to a book or a site that can give me some direction...I am really crummy at making hollow beads the traditional way so was hoping as well to make "shards" too, to integrate into my work.
Thanks for any and all information
Kindest e gards
Tina

Thumbs up Glass blowing on mandrels

Hi Pete
Thanks so much for the infomation you provided. I haven't had a chance to contact Jeri, but I will. There are so many lampworkers out there that specialize in one thing or another, sometimes its hard to root through them all and find someone who has some ideas.

Thanks again
Best wishes for the Holidays
Regards, Tina

As a beginning bead maker...I found this book very helpful. The photographs are colorful and detailed. Each bead technique is carefully explained. The techniques for building the different shapes was most helpful in correcting what I was doing wrong. It is a helpful resource for working on mastering the beginning techniques before moving onto the more intricate ones. I closed the book feeling inspired and ready to try again. Glass Chillers

i thought those things were just for rinsing? thought the actual chilling was done by putting them in a freezer?
didn't think the spray of cold water would chill them enough?Glass Chillers
