Though I love a good storm, and we definitely needed the rain, this storm brought with it chilly temperatures I thought we’d seen the last of a couple months ago. So I was inspired to make these beads which all reminded me of the warmer weather to come. 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and made coordinating sets of beads. But I recently received an order of pretty colored glass frit blends and they inspired me to make several beads that all go together. 😀
There are times when I think that a combination of colors will look great together but once made, pulled, cut, and tested I am sometimes disappointed to find that the end result did not turn out as well as I hoped it would.
I have spent many, many, (many!) hours making murrini cane that just end up getting stashed away in my ‘failed attempts’ jar – after all that time spent on them, I simply don’t have the heart to throw them away. 🙂
So when I make murrini that actually comes out beautifully you can imagine how excited I am!
Here are two recent lampwork glass murrini successes in new color combinations for Summer:
