Summertime Big Hole Beads

I just have a small batch of encased murrini beads this week – the heat has made torching very difficult. Even in the morning it’s already hot so my time making beads is pretty limited now. One day I hope to have a climate controlled bead making studio!

I have been on a latticino (or is it spelled laticcino?) kick lately – I love the detail that these swirly strands of glass add to my encased beads and can’t stop adding them to almost every one! LOL! πŸ˜€

These beads are available now on Etsy:

NEW Handmade Encased Murrini Bead Necklaces & Pendant

My obsession – going strong… πŸ˜€Β  You’d think after a year and a half of being consumed with making encased murrini beads I’d be tired of them by now. But no – there are so many endless design possibilities that I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this style bead. Occasionally I do venture out and do different things, but I always seem to come back to these. What’s a girl to do? πŸ˜‰
