LEAFY SCROLL


I finally managed to get these beads cleaned, strung and photographed.  They were the last beads I made before I injured my back last week, and they have been sitting beside my sink mocking me.  I am pleased with the colours of the leaves - I used an odd lot from Double Helix glass, and it has given me greens, blues, purples and browns.  When I use this glass on it's own in a bead, all I get is a very dark striated burgundy, but when it is thinly used as in the leaves above, then I get the myriad of colours.
This set can be found in my Etsy shop.
I hope to be back at the torch this weekend, or at least by Monday - here's hoping I haven't jinxed it!

Have a great weekend everyone!
