Oooh, I love the geode marble!


I haven't been making much, but I put this together recently as a gift for someone.

Wow Marcel! Those are just stunning. I'm almost embarrased to show my simple beads after that LOL! Here goes anyway. I make one or two of these after a day of beadmaking so they don't match, I just make them willy nilly.

Then I scroll down a little more and hit Rebecca's beads. People are always searching for a good pink. Dudette, you hit the nail on the head.

Yup that is one nice pink. Do you get that pink from the laying over the ns rust with something or is that the rust?

I make a cane with 10-12mm clear and coat it with Rust. Everything else is variable but it's usually some combination of AP, Lt. Purple Haze, Triple Passion, Double Passion, some sparkle from something, maybe a stringer of disco, NS #9....stuff like that. Not necessarily all of that at once though. lol

MissP, that's a beautiful teal!

I always admire people who make boro beads. I think I need adamantium mandrels. And patience. And maybe some different bead release as mine always flakes off in the heat. And some more patience. WHY WON'T THE FRIGGIN THING MELT ROUND ARRRRRGHHHH.

Thank you for sharing those cool beads =)

I hear you Chris I can make nice round bead with soft glass but with boro is like being back on a hot head torch as a newbie. I have made a few beads with boro and I use fusion bead release and when I am melting the glass smooth I hit the top of the bead with the flame not the centre as the mandrel gets to hot and threatens to melt in half. The beads being shown on this thread a beautiful.

Whoa, Juba. Those are SMOKIN'. Really, to me all the waveyness is definitely colored smoke, or regular smoke over cool colors. (Give me a few minutes. I'll probably see something else in them.)
