Here is the end result of working with a couple of glasses, terra and another one I can't remember the name of right now. Interesting how the dots are a variety of colors. Pink, blue, green, very interesting. Everytime I make one of these beads I get a different reaction. It definitely makes a difference what base color the bead starts out being and then how the high content silver glass reacts to that color. It's like a house of cards all reacting to the next card that is added. I need a journal just to keep track of what does what!
I don't know about everyone else but it was quite a year for me and my family. We sold our house last year, moved, did all that fun stuff you do in a new house - yard, inside shelving, patio, etc., and I worked on my business. It is slowly coming together and I'm learning something new everyday. Glass is like that, you can never learn everything, which is why I love it so much! I found some of the treasurys I was in that got into on the front page. Super neat! I'm the beads on the bottom left!
Being on the Treasury Team has been a blast! I've gotten to visit a lot of interesting shops to pick out items that I want to put in my Treasurys and we have ways that we meet online to talk and exchange ideas. I love working with color and the subtle nuances within each color. Now if I could just figure out how to capture the picture of the Treasurys that I make so I could post them! These have been posted onto Flickr so I downloaded them from there.
