New Swirled Core Marble Beads With Murrini

Learning new techniques then mastering them is what keeps me having fun with glass! πŸ˜€

I’ve been involved with many crafts and hobbies over the years, from soapmaking to acrylic painting, and while I’ve enjoyed them all there was a point where I felt I learned all there was to know about it.

For me, I love the challenge of learning new skills then practicing over and over till I get great results. Working with glass, I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface of learning all there is to know in this medium. There is so much to it and so many different places you can go with it.

I recently learned a new technique which combines swirls of transparent and opaque glass with hair fine stringer and multiple layers of crystal clear glass which greatly adds to the inner illusion of the twisted core.

Of course, I couldn’t help myself by adding some murrini to the surface of the beads πŸ˜‰

All beads are now available on Etsy:

Afternoon Breeze – large round focal bead

Arctic Sea - large round focal bead

I also made a couple encased murrini beads which include some of my new flower shaped murrini (to be listed on Etsy soon):
