Is there really such a thing as too much murrini, though? Not in my world! LOL! 😀
I recently had to upgrade to a bigger tray to hold my ever-growing murrini collection:
I usually begin every torching session by making a new batch of murrini. This is part warm-up, part ‘feeding the obsession’ – hehe. 😉 I also like to keep my bead designs fresh and new so I’m constantly making more murrini to use in my beads.
Problem is (if you can call it a problem…) I always end up with wayyy more murrini in a single design or color than I’ll ever be able to use myself since each batch of murrini makes so many chips! Sometimes I will list my de-stash on Etsy. Other times I just keep it all for myself… 😀
I do try and put all the murrini I make to good use, however. Below are this week’s beads featuring some new murrini I made.
(Note: for the record, I do occasionally buy murrini from other talented glass artists as well – I love using it too much and too often to ever be able to make so many different murrini designs myself! One of my favorite glass artists, Lori & Kim, make some of the most unique murrini in such beautiful colors and fun patterns which I love to use in my beads. But the majority of the murrini I use in my beads are ones I’ve made myself. 🙂 )
Some of these beads are still available on Etsy:
