Fresh Glass 6.18.15

More Fresh Glass: this batch is the result of playing around with lapis and ivory. A friend had told me about the several shades of Avorio lapis glass... it is ivory and lapis mixed... I decided to try and create the effect on my own.  The bead on the right was first... and I used cobalt instead of lapis. I got very little striation of color and realized my mistake.

Then came the bead on the left... LOVELY striations! Then I made the two silvered ivory beads... the long one broke... ugh! And the heart is a bead that over grew the lentil mold. Sigh...
