Magical Realm

I really love the traslucency of the new Creation is Messy glass. This one is made from a combination of cirrus, and handblown shards of Halong Bay, along with another colour or two that I can't remember. This particular bead is one that I made at the beadFX lampwork trunk show. I was demonstrating how to blow shards. The ability to create your own is far better than purchasing the premade ones. You can get completely custom colour variations, and they only take a few minutes. If you can make a hollow bead, these are a piece of cake. You just need some glass, and a blow tube. - Just remember, little puffs of air. You're not blowing up a balloon.
