These little Lampwork cupcakes are cute enough to eat. These little beads are approximately 10mm. Each bead was created one bead at a time in our studio with CIM and Effetre glass.
This floral Lampwork bead was created on a black base with large white & lavender flowers. This bead was made with amethyst purple and created lavender petals. This bead measures 30 mm in length.
A beautiful floral bead created on an aqua background with periwinkle amethyst flowers. The bead has shimmering silver mica inside the bead. The smaller white accent beads have a bubble in the middle of the flowers.
In these bead, I worked with more layers and controlled the heat to avoid distortion. The purple bead flowers are the most defined of the three. The flowers do show the best on darker backgrounds.
This beautiful Glass Diversion Valentine Frit looked beautiful on most of the base glass. These opaque pink blends looked especially nice on Opal and New Violet.
Using clear did not work well because the color wasn’t dense enough. It looked good on white, opal yellow, and periwinkle.
New Val Cox frits arrived and here is what they looked like in the beads I created with the glass. My favorite beads in this group has to be the Boro Bora which had a surprising variety of colors.
These little beauties were made with Val Cox Iron Oxide frit. The wide range of colors was surprising. These Lampwork bead pictures were taken outside in natural light which brings out the colors.
