Good Afternoon! I have a horrible horrible cricked neck!!! its rubbish, it better go soon cuz I've got things to do!!! Right, well yesterday was very progressive which is always good! I made my first set of actual ROUND beads... not doughnut shaped round beads... my dad keep telling me to make marbles, lol, and I have been practicing for a couple of weeks, and I have finally cracked it, so I made some supper special beads!!! These beads are made with CIM Tuxedo black, and then I have drapped Double Helix's Psyche around the bead, which is a silver rich glass, so when it is reduced it gives a very silvery/metalic look. I haven't quite got the hang of reducing glass, and I don't even know where to begin when it comes to striking glass! I have called this bead set Psyched Out... because of using the Psyche Glass :-) I love Psyche but it so expesive, i can't afford to waste it so it only comes out when I know exactly what I'm doing! Each bead has a capri blue swarovski cryals between them which really sets off the beautiful blue from the silver glass.
At least I have made this reducing work a little... fingers crossed it can only get better from here!!!
Also yesterday I finished off this set which I have called Jewellery Box.
Anyway, I'm off to make some more now!! of course! :-)
