Inspiration



Lorelei Eurto posted a photo of Joan Miller's porcelain beads on facebook, and when I saw them, I had to make some in glass. The colors are so pretty. I used reichenbach glass for the pink/tangerine colored ones, and pea green with pink enamel for the other one. On the green one, I used baking soda to get the matte, pitted look, which is pretty cool! Not exactly the same, but an interpretation!

Nice! Have you tried adding clear over a rolled bead in baking soda you get tons of bubbles. Heavly incased with clear. Do you think they will hold up over time?Try it your next time at the torch they are cool. Or does any other lampwork know if you can do that to a bead? I would love to know.

The circle is complete. My bumpy porcelain beads were inspired by lampwork beads.
