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

David, I just purchased the last tutorial in your etsy shop. You need to add more!

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!


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!


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:


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?
