Experiments in Silver Colors

Hi All!

Been working on some new experimenting (besides the eye thing) and playing around with Iris Gold and Striking Color to create cool, boro-looking silvered beads - - but doing it in soft glass.

I am surprised at some of the effects I am achieving and having much fun with it.  I hope to do more experimenting in the future and make some really unique items!  Most of the beads shown here I am donating to Beads of Courage along with other beads I will be making in the near future.  I also have a plan to make a lot of "stringer" beads - making many different designs, dots, etc. and getting rid of a lot of my stringers I have laying around here.  Those will also go to BOC.

Can't wait to get on the torch again tonight!!
