I have been a busy bee - making lots of new beads, experimenting with new colours and techniques. Don't worry I won't chuck it all at you at once.
The first one is standard Effetre black with a little Rubino Ora and white rose. I made a stringer by encasing some standard Effetre white with the Rubino and twirled it onto the bead. There are little green dots for the leaves and a yellow centre. I have etched the bead in Etchall.
This one is Effetre Rossato - the first time I have used this glass and it's lovely. I have added some standard clear glass wings and a little coil of fine silver. Then etched it.
