Watercolor Big Hole Hand Made Glass Beads

I recently stumbled upon a neat trick that transforms simple colored glass frit into a washed watercolor effect on a reactive glass base! The technique produces translucent pools of color that take on a unique, one of a kind look with every bead. 😀

Here’s a bead I made using an old tried-and-true technique which always produces great results and a unique look – combining dark ivory glass with fine silver foil. It turns ordinary glass into what looks like natural stone.

Learning confidence, self value, and business from my mentor Sue Bryce at her beautiful studio in DTLA. 🏙😊 A couple of my favorite quotes from Sue: “Looking for validation from others is asking someone else to do the work we should be doing on ourselves.” “What we assume people are thinking about us, is really based on what we think of ourselves.” #ahamoments #lightbulbmoments #suebryceeducation #confidence #selfvalue
