I don't know if its any tuts out there on this but how I would do it is; do your implosion and on the back after you marver it flat heat the center really hot and use a big clear rod and twist it.

Looks like a "ghost" flower which is fumed.

Looks like it was silver fumed - fume the maria, then place large clear dots, and do as above.

Probably not fumed. Looks like Mystery Aventurine to me. It's a standard implosion, but after it's done imploding you twist it.

This was done the same way:



***shameless plug alert***

I teach that technique in my pendant books...

I owe all the credit for that to my wife. She sat through sub-freezing temperatures to take the pics for me...
