Default "Lightning" from Silver Glass?

Does anyone know if there is a tutorial for purchase or information on making the lightning effect from silver glass? Would love to try this and am willing to buy a tutorial, but not sure if it has been discussed here.

Thanks all!

If this is the same thing that Julie Ferguson calls the "strobe" effect, she has included it in the ebook she wrote about lots of the silver glasses. Her etsy ID is fergiebeads and the book is available there. It is totally worth the investment!

I'm curious to see as well. There's an effect I think looks like lightning in boro that is somehow done with purposely trapped air during encasement. Totally cool, but also a mystery on the process. I peeked at her tutorial on etsy, but didn't see anything like lightning on the cover pictures.

Well....I'm actually starting to work on a tutorial for it along with another technique and a layering color chart. I've just started to make all the sample beads and there's a lot to make so it won't be ready for at least a month.

Hey You,
