I tried this with the clear core last time I needed to make stringer and really like the results, thanks so much for sharing this!

Rose~ Thanks SO MUCH for sharing your SIS "recipe"! I've been disapointed with SIS, as it just didn't have enough movement and texture to it, no matter how much heat I blasted it with, how it was applied, etc. Your version with the clear core is absolutely PERFECT!! It just takes seconds in the flame for it to spread out, and the clear, plus the gap in the silver, make it look so much more textural. Thank-you!!!

Rose, I am going to give you a giant hug the next time I see you! Your recipe for SIS worked great...pulled stringers this morning and made a bead. This is the first time I got SIS to actually do something interesting. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

lol Chris! Glad it worked.

Maybe I should aim for the cabin next spring.

I have to confess though - sometimes it is just the ivory. Some are better than others, and I'm talking about different batches of Effetre Dark Ivory.

When it's working right, it sure is fun.

Oh so glad this thread made it to the first page again or I would have missed all this golden knowledge. Wonderfully written, great photos, very easy to understand. I too can't wait to use clear as the core. I like that you left some of the ivory uncovered too. I tend to freak out when it doesn't cover completely and scramble around, almost burning myself, trying to find a tiny piece to add in. But at the same time I don't get as much movement and texture as you do Rose. I think using the clear and having some ivory showing will greatly improve my SS.

Thank you so much for writing, sharing and posting pictures on your technique Rose!

Oh wow, I second Donna on that....just the description of how you let the center droop before pulling was outstanding! Thankyou!

Like so many things, there are probably as many ways to make SIS as there are beadmakers.

It fun to see more people giving this method a try.

But for me there is only one way that works!!!! Yours!!!

I was ready to give up, all I ever wanted was to make organic beads, with SIS. I tried ever SIS method, none worked for me. They always turned out dark and ugly.

I studied the tut. last night, thought about it all night and then this morning I pulled a stringer and made a bead.

I have never been impressed with my SIS work. But to today, for the first time I got SIS to actually do something interesting.

I'm so excited!!! You made my day! Thanks you so very, very much for sharing.

Thanks again!

I might try some again too, I haven't been happy with mine lately, all sorta gray and washed out. So I need to remember this technique again. I have been adding fine stirngers of intense black, or a little intense black frit, to help with the reactions. And I like that.
