Two New Bead Series – Luna & English Garden

Luna Series Bead

LUNA SERIES BEAD

The technique used in this bead causes fantastic reactions when certain types of glass are layered with fine silver foil.

The top half of this bead shows the results with varying shades of bright blue, soft greens and teals and even light purple.

I also incorporated dark ivory glass which has its own unique reaction with fine silver. It becomes darker and takes on a natural stone-like appearance.

This bead is available now starting at just .99 cents! Click here to visit this eBay auction.

English Garden Series Bead - PansyENGLISH GARDEN SERIES BEAD

I enjoy creating flowers from glass whenever I can. Especially during this time of year when inspiration is plentiful.

I’ve been working more and more with enamels, which is a finely ground glass powder. This product is carefully applied for a wispy, watercolor effect and then heated to a high gloss finish.

Shades of teal blue and green enamel set the stage for the handpulled vine cane that I wrapped around the bead for a stem and background.

Tiny 3 petal dot flowers are slowly melted in flush with the surface, then I added a raised pansy flower on top of the bead in a transparent deep purple glass with a dark blue dot in the center.

The name for this bead series came easily. As the wistful colors and application of glass instantly reminded me of the random beauty you can see in a typical English-style garden setting.
