Very nice, Jamie! Keep us posted!

Nancy, I am envious of your native trilliums. They are such pure beauty! My bead isn't the best example of what Michelangelo can do, but it is at least one example of an old vs new rod and then reduction in a very modest propane-rich flame. So, don't give up on the new rods!!

Great example, Steph. I find that the new Sasha's Silver is definitely not as colorful (or iridescent) when reduced as the old ones.

That is indeed a great example Steph! Too bad the new batch Sasha's silver is like this .

Beautiful bead Steph! Love the trilliums - did I understand that they were done with one of the newer rods?
My bead isn't nearly as exciting as Steph's, but I thought it struck nicely. It's a basic straight-sided lentil bead that I heated to almost white hot, let it cool, struck it in a neutral flame then flashed through a soft reducing flame - then repeated the whole heat/strike/reduce sequence again. This is from a really thick rod out of the older batch.

Default My FIRST picture post!

This is the only time that I got lots of color out of Sasha's Silver. These were made with some of the old opaque rods. Have tried the newer transparent rods and got nothing except brown. Beads are richer purple than they look in pic.

I'm photo-challenged. This picture was taken by Keith of Frantz Art Glass. Thanks Keith!!
