I am SO super excited to present the first batch of fresh new beads for this New Year! 😀
I must say, it feels really good to be back at the torch melting glass after such a long hiatus. Absence definitely makes the heart grow fonder!
As you probably know by now, I’m fairly obsessed with murrini. 🙂
Many people call my encased murrini beads “little worlds” – which I think is the perfect way to describe them. My goal is to give you something a bit different to look at from every angle of the bead.
When I’m creating these beads I don’t plan out the design in advance (except for a general idea of color or if I have a special murrini I want to feature in the bead). They are truly spontaneously made at the flame, in the moment. This is why custom orders are impossible for me with this style bead.
Because every bead is so unique, you can have pride in knowing that the bead you choose to own is truly a one-of-a-kind work of art. There will never be another bead exactly like yours, (even though I do occasionally re-use the names I give beads). 🙂
Beads available now on Etsy: (KONA REEF has already sold)
I have recently joined Instagram (finally, lol!) and have been posting my gallery of beads past and present there. I would love for you to join me there… http://www.instagram.com/ccglassart_
