Mama Mia - Can you say Aurae?

Gorgeous is all I can say! I tried this glass out with the bubble effect and I am so pleased with the results! It has so many subtle shades of color, irridescence, reflection, I can't say enough good things about it. It reflects everything around it and the base color also gets reflected color. There are so many possibilities that this glass can be used in that I don't know where to start first. One for sure will be blowing shards of this glass. I made another bead that I left the glass raised and it is extremely shiny and colorful but I wasn't happy with the end results of the beads shape. I'm thinking of reheating the bead and seeing if I can do a little magic on it. That ought to be interesting.

I know very little about glass, but I just adore your beads and love the spacers! I also am really drawn to etched finishes.

The bubble round... circles are cool. :)
