In honor of my very first day on Etsy, I thought I'd gear up a site that is solely in honor of the glory of glass! Glass beads especially... Above is a superstar in my book, with a glorious core of the heavily silvered R4 glass, that has been encased and dotted with copper cutout flowers - then encased again.
This adventure I've been on with this glass has lasted a few years and I'm amazed at what is still possible, as well as what comes out of the kiln!
Although the set shown below has been sold, I am posting this picture because I was so taken by the power of the glass. I continue to have a fixation regarding how the light is transmitted through the rich transparent glass - and seemingly releasing jolts of color. In this - I especially love the richness of the greens & purples.
