I love spacers & a goddess bead
I've decided I am going to make some spacer beads each time I do some torching. It is a good way to test colours and I think they will make some lovely bracelets with some little silver spacer beads.
CIM Plum Unique 658-1
Effetre Cool Green Tea 680
The next bead is a base of CIM Chai unq 765-2 encased with Lauscha Peah 608 and then dots of the same Chai.
Next to that the bead is a base of Effetre Lt Sky Blue 224 encased with Effetre Baby Blue 038 and dots of CIM Lapis.
The last bead was a bit of a play. I made a bead a while ago which was a lovely purple but couldn't remember what glass I used to make it, that was before my blog diary. I also wanted to practice my light encasing and play with some stainless steel sculpting tools I'd bought. So this is CIM Peace lightly encased with Effetre Ink Blue 058. A lovely yummy purple.
I finally had a play with one of my new bead presses from Bavarian Beads. It's the Bavarian 3D Female XL.
The glass is Effetre Pale Emerald 031 with Raisa frit from Frit-en-glas.
