Smile Help please. Implosion beads.

I have found a stunning bead I am trying to replicate a technical challenge. I dont want to copy it as such just get a grip o the techniques.
I am hoping the hive mind may help me
I understand the basic components in theory but getting the deep fluting on the left hand section has me stumped.
Also, if I could locate the maker I would be very interested to compliment them on this beautiful work.

I love that combo of flutes and rolls, I've never seen that before.

There is a free tut here in LE that would tell you how to get that fluting look. Basically encased dots that are melted down and stretch with the sagging hot glass. There is also a free tut for artichoke beads that is similar to the petal implosiopn tuts.


There are some tutorials on Etsy, I've recently seen one for about $12.50 so that's probably the best deal. Otherwise, Magma beads, Anastasia Beads and that British lady........Sally Carver, that's it. All have WONDERFUL tuts that will help you get this technique. The rest is just practice. Have fun! and post in the show & tell Newbies & Intermediates group over in the gallery. We would love to see what you are doing
