Beads and Murrini today

 These 3 pictures are of both sides of one bead, with one close up..  the twisty is used from the left over from making the  murrini.. I do like it.   one murrini has a nice glob of clear to magnify.. other side just plain..

I know that both of these pictures the murrini look exactly the same..  but the top picture has double white layer which I used topaz .. the bottom only 1 layer of white.. with aqua..  soooooo....

Ok so this murrini was the "topaz" added .. not that thrilled but it was good to try.. and see... the twisty worked pretty well here.. from the left over glass from one of the murrini pulls..

 This is a picture of another bead both sides and one close up..  again with the aqua stripes.. love the color reactions..
  All the beads above created with Ivory dark with silver foil  and raking of transparents and raised dots here and there,medium sized focals about 1 inch tall 3/4 inch wide and about 1/2 inch thick...this is a lot of fun at this point.  I do need to improve on technique on murrini creations.. as well as using them.

Please accept apology I am still working on photographing this little glass items.
Have a great week.. and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Looking great! I've never made reactive/silver murrini. So pretty both in raw form and on your beads.
