Beads of Fire..... #Blogtoberfest day 12

Today is the day :-D Be Child Cancer Aware has organised a walk of fire to raise funds and honour children on the Beads of Courage program here in the UK. The intrepid fire walkers are undertaking training for tonight's daring challenge as I type and each will carry a pair of unique handmade glass beads as they bravely face the coals at the Selex Sports & Leisure Club, Gardiners Way Gardiners Lane, South Basildon at 7 O'Clock tonight. One of the beads will become a memento of the day and its twin will be given as a booster bead, along with a special message, to lift the spirits of very special children on the Beads of Courage program.

I have been helping out by organising a colour scheme and coordinating the making of the Fire Beads with some very talented UK lampworkers with glass kindly donated by Kathy Seamands of Creation is Messy.

To everyone involved with this evening's daring do, I wish you the very best of luck.

Here is a little gallery and roll of honour for the glass artists who have given their time to lovingly make all of the Fire Beads.

Beautiful Fire Beads by Stepanie Gough, Fiona Smith, Heather Kelly, Debbie Dew, Cecilia Lawrence, Tan Grey, Laney Mead, Carole Hughes, Elaine Galloway, Sue Reynolds, Vic Tierney, Jo Walker, Jo Wolfe, and Kat Newman.
