Mosaics are coming out of my kiln at the moment and I have to say these are just so yummy. Will be one of the styles that I will be offering lined in silver of course and eventually gold. Will do these in some other color combinations as well. The golds,browns and greens and the pinks, purples and blues. This bead is one of the most difficult and time consuming that I do. There are over fifty layers of glass VERY carefully placed to create each mosaic layer that you see.
Im going to post a video from You Tube in the next few days of a lampworker making a bead at the torch. I know that many of you aren't really sure how these beads are made or what lampworking exactly is. It won't be me but there are a few videos which are really good and will give you a good idea of what this amazing art form is all about. So stay tuned. Lots more fun beads and lampworking coming your way. k
