Creating a Water Spirit Bead tutorial
 
At last, I am very happy to announce that my Tutorial, "Creating a Water Spirit Bead" is published. This tutorial is debuting on Etsy on Monday, the 13th of February.

I hope that you enjoy the techniques showcased in this tutorial. I will be very interested in seeing your results with the use of it.

Please enjoy!

He needs to change the shipping to 'everywhere', it's limited to Canada right now.

simvet02 2012-02-13 10:11pm

beauxartz 2012-02-15 10:08am

Thank you, David for a great tutorial. Your beads are just stunning!

blaqmor 2012-02-15 11:28am

Thank you Lisa, I posted more for last night, but it must have been placed in 'inactive listings'.:roll: There are more available this morning though.:-)

Thank you Dagmar!

Teena 2012-02-15 6:11pm

Hi david!
How exciting you made a tutorial !! I have purchased 3 of your wonderful beads in the past.
I wanted to ask, This is just soft glass right?

blaqmor 2012-02-15 8:47pm

Hello Teena, yes, we have met in the past.:wave: I am fond of your recent sets.
The tutorial uses soft glass!

David

LisaF 2012-02-16 12:55am

My first Spirit Bead is in the kiln. It was such a fun process and my fingers are crossed that it will look good in the morning!

blaqmor 2012-02-16 7:38am

Wow, good for you, Lisa! I can't wait to see it!

I await news from other folks that kindly purchased my 'Water Spirit" tutorial as well! Please post your results!

One of mine for encouragement,


Her name is 'Telphusa'

Thank you David, your tutorial is awesome,
Martha Maria

Teena 2012-02-17 3:08pm


I hope this is the right thread to show our Water Spirit beads?
Thanks David I love this tutorial.
I didn't make the shards as I'm not good at making them. :-(
This is De's rose murrinis.

LisaF 2012-02-17 4:57pm

Teena - It's beautiful!!

blaqmor 2012-02-18 10:20am

Lovely Teena, maybe I can help you with the shards:waving:

Thank you Martha Maria!

David

Teena 2012-02-18 3:49pm


Here's a set based on the Tutorial. I usually only make sets...
This tutorial has given me lots of ideas and inspiration!
Thanks David!

blaqmor 2012-02-18 7:05pm

Hello Teena:

Beautiful set, it is so pretty!

I am happy to hear that the tutorial is of use to you, I was hoping that the techniques would be useful for other projects as well=D>

I am wondering how these beads look on a 'solid' background, when light cannot pass through them (as typical when worn). Any photos available to illustrate this?

blaqmor 2012-02-19 7:02pm

Lisa, I have never made one like this, so cannot report on it. I specialize on making beads with transparent colours, because I like the interaction between the layers of colour and the depth that results with this method. I think that it could be an interesting experiment though, you could skip some of the steps and try it!:idea:

David

GlassGalore 2012-02-19 7:24pm

David, no... I don't mean that the bead would be made any differently. I mean how does one of these beads look when it's being worn against the body (light entering but not exiting), as opposed to being photographed in a light box?

Yes, I would like to see it photographed on a solid background too. Any chance of you providing a picture like that?

Here is a bead I made based on the tutorial. I didn't use the right DH glass for the mystery rings, but I love the bead anyway.


Carmen Isaacs 2012-02-20 7:51am

Oh Lisa, I love it!

blaqmor 2012-02-20 8:56am

Lisa and Patsy, I'm sorry I do not have any photos like that, I will see what I can do...

Thank you for posting! Lisa F. Your bead is lovely! I like the way that it is a Lisa bead, it definitely has your touch!

David

AKDesigns 2012-02-20 10:36am

That's gorgeous Lisa!

LisaF 2012-02-20 10:39am

Thank you!

killerbeedz1 2012-02-20 11:31am

Very pretty Lisa!

blaqmor 2012-02-20 5:24pm

Lisa and Patsy, I have taken two photos, the top one is against a black background, with the bottom one against a white background. Ideally this should be done outside, but it is raining, so this is the best I can do at the moment.

Here are the results. Sorry about the reflection on the upper one. The camera settings were not changed for each photo, just the background. The bead is the one I made for the tutorial.




David

GlassGalore 2012-02-20 6:41pm

Thanks David

killerbeedz1 2012-02-20 10:42pm

Thank you.

Lisa, if you don't mind - what glass did you use instead of the one mentioned in the tut? You got great windows into it. I am out of the proper glass, the one mentioned, and have been experimenting with other reduction glasses (DH) - 2 of my local suppliers are out of the proper one. We do have about 6 or 7 other DH reduction glasses.

Thanks

and BTW your bead is STUNNING!

debiweiss 2012-02-21 2:53pm

David this is a wonderful tutorial and the bead that I made came out really great! My picture taking abilities does leave a lot of room for improvement so I have not taken a picture! I can not wait to experiment with other glasses to see what happens Thank you again for some wonderful information

blaqmor 2012-02-21 10:28pm

Hello Debi:

I am so happy that you like the tutorial; I would love to see your bead=D>

I would really encourage anyone who tried the tutorial to post their results as well!

David

blaqmor 2012-02-22 11:38am

OK: For those that showed an interest in a modified technique.
As promised, here are some beads that I made yesterday. Both sides of two beads.




Kalypso



Aurae

I don't mind the first one, but the second one is not my cuppa tea!

David

LisaF 2012-02-22 2:19pm

I think they are BOTH GORGEOUS!!!

blaqmor 2012-02-22 3:54pm

You are most kind, Lisa! Thank you!

David

Jane P 2012-02-22 5:26pm

I really like that aqua one David!

blaqmor 2012-02-22 7:13pm

Thank you Jane, it is my fave of the two also! I just wanted to show the different effects, since some folks were wondering...

David

Carmen Isaacs 2012-02-22 10:12pm

I love them. I am amazed that the Kalypso reads Aqua.

blaqmor 2012-02-26 10:08am

Thank you Carmen. Yes, it held it's color well, I thought.

David
