Monet’s Lilies

It’s been a long time since I used powdered glass enamels in my beads. Although messy to work with, I love the wispy look they give. Combined with a special technique where they are layered with frit and encased in clear they develop what I like to call a ‘watercolor effect’.

In these beads I used this technique with enamels and glass frit in shades of teal, soft green, blue and lavender. Being a fan of Monet’s paintings I couldn’t help but name these beads after his unique impressionistic style.
