My first three are done except for the coring. They look awesome! Can't wait to core and finish them off to wear.

Is it because the tubing is too tall? Or is the bead too large in diameter?
If you have the Impress Liner, you can buy a "riser kit" for it.

Yeah the core is a tad too tall and it won't fit under the top thingy. Today was really bad. One I capped and cored and somehow the one cap fell off and I didn't notice. crap
2 other beads I found a small dent in the glass after going thru all the trouble of capping and coring. Uggggg They must have touched something in the kiln.

Arrrgh! I hate days like that!
I have a collection of capped and cored beads I've *collected* over time because they have the tiniest little flaw that no one would ever notice with the naked eye, but I know it's there. I almost have enough for a bracelet of misfits for myself.

My eyesight is getting so bad now I inspect every bead with a magnifying glass before I core it. That way I don't get any surprises when I see the close up on my computer.

Thought I'd show something from my newest batch. These are the same beads and the same pose. All I did was move the angle of the lights!

Love these beads. Where does everyone get your smooth silver bead caps. Do you make your own or is there somewhere I can order them?

Ginko sells them already made up here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ginkodesig...tion_leftnav_2
She has them already domed or undomed. I make my own because I have the equipment and it's a bit cheaper.

I think they both look fantastic, Pat!
And that purple one...oh my! I just want to lick it!
I've found that the more sparkly and beautiful the bead, the harder it is to capture in a photograph.

P.S. I deleted my original post and updated the photo. +2 macro lens seems to do the trick!

Oh, WOW!!! What a difference the macro lens makes! It gets you right into the center of the bead! I really need to upgrade my little point and shoot camera!
