Mushroom Season (in lampwork beads)???

Saturday, January 06, 2007
The base of these beads were made with a Gaffer glass called ‘Mushroom’. It’s a reactive and changes colors. Depending on where you place it in the flame, the glass will turn tan, brown, pinky-tan, rust, sage, or khaki. Most of the twisties had a small amount of silver in them so that the patterns are very marbled. I also added a Briggs Jasper pendant, it matches the strand perfectly. The cab was hand-cut and polished by my hubby. The wire bezel is sterling...of course. :-)

I've got a lot more work with this glass...I'd really like to see just what it will do.

Ok...that's all for today. I'm off to the studio...I've got lots and lots to do.

Have a happy, creative day!

Now this one is my favorite yet. I love the blues and browns together. And the pendant is a beautiful touch. Love the wire bezel.
