Meditation Pools


I love the aged and webbed look that comes from the fuming of ivory with a silver laden glass.  I have wanted to do something simple but with punch that incorporates this technique for quite a while.  One of the artists that posts on Lampwork Etc (Amy Kinsch I think) does this techinque wonderfully with some of her big holed beads.  Her dots are raised and there are many around the bead.  I decided to just do one simple large dot and melt it smooth, and I am really pleased with the results.
These beads can be found on Etsy.

Thank you everyone! Alice, they are off in the mail today for you.

I am planning on making some more in different background colours. One I have experimented with is a pale buttery cream colour, and another in a copper green colour - they both look great. Hopefully I will have them available sometime next week.
