I'm really enjoying my bead making at the moment and I was quite productive yesterday.
I wanted to make some more spacer beads in CIM Atlantis but was a bit surprised when the beads I pulled out of the kiln this morning were two different shades of dark tourquoise. I wasn't aware that I had done anything different when making the beads. I had a quick look on the CIM website and it looks like I will need to make sure I don't overheat this glass.
Back in February I blogged about some goodies that I bought from Jo at Frit'n'chips. http://earth-shinedesigns.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/mini-mo-chocolate-limes.html.
Is'nt it gorgeous! It is a hollow bead made using CIM Bordello and the colours just pop when it is viewed in sunlight. I love it!
Not sure that I will get much bead making done over the next few days as my mum is visiting for my birthday.
