Handmade glass murrini beads by CCGlassArt

Christina Catherine of CCGlassArt will be at Graceful Customs in Gilroy, CA to teach a 2 day lampworking glass art class on July 23 and 24, 2016.

Christina has been making lampwork glass beads since 2008 and discovered her “passion” was making murrini.ย  She has 2 tutorials “Making Beautiful Murrini” and “Making Beautiful Encased Murrini Beads” and has had her tutorialsย  featured in e-magazines, Soda Lime Times, and ISGB.

Description of classes…

Day 1:
Making ocean-theme murrini, latticino, and other embeds for encasing
– complex concentric circle murrini
– watercolor murrini
– shell murrini
– encased stringers
– black coral strands
– seaweed latticino
Learn multiple techniques on Day 1 while making all the sea-themed elements that will go into the bead design we will construct and encase on day 2.

Day 2:
Putting it all together: Designing and assembling the pattern, applying all the elements, and successfully encasing multi-murrini beads
– learn my reliable, step-by-step method of placing murrini, and other embeds, that creates a color coordinated, harmonious, and visually full design every time
– finish the bead with encasing techniques that suspends the design while maintaining a dimensional look
Day 2 is all about mapping out the bead design, building and properly placing all the elements in the bead then encasing the murrini beneath a layer of clear glass while maintaining the dimensional look of all the embeds.

Words cannot express what an incredible experience I had attending Sue Bryce's Sales & Marketing Intensive workshop at her fabulous studio in #DTLA. I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to learn from such an extraordinary woman, who is one of the top portrait photographers in the world. I also loved spending time again with my 'photo-family' who are such a talented, amazing, and wonderful group of women! ๐Ÿ˜Š  #photograhyeducation #suebryce  Group photo credit : Aaron Andersen
