pink lampwork focal bead

Looks Good Enough to Eat - Lampwork Beads

The fuchsia pink, ivory, and dark brown colors in this lampwork bead look really nice together. For some reason, it really reminds me of candy or ice cream. I do not even eat ice cream, which might be a crime. Lactose and I are not friends.

Organic Lampwork Focal Beads

This bead turned out beautifully. I just love all the reactions that happened in the ivory in this bead. This was one of those wonderful mornings like Christmas when you get pleasantly surprised when you see the bead for the first time.

sedimentary rocks lampwork beads

Sedimentary Rock Lampwork Beads

These beads turned out so beautiful. They are created with Val Cox's Frit Blend Iron Oxide. These were created custom stringers created with clear glass, val cox frit, goldstone, and intense black accents. These remind me of the layers of sediments found in rocks that create waves. This is the reason I called these lampwork beads 'sedimentary rocks'.

Songbird Frit

Songbird Frit

This Songbird Frit by Val Cox is prettier on the beads than I expected. It looks great on most of the base glass tested. I ended up creating an entire set with this frit that that look nice together. This frit really played nicely with all of the bases colors I selected.

red lampwork beads

Playing with Frit

Yesterday, I made up several beads I thought might look nice together for the holidays. My goal was to find a pretty red color to use to make up some Christmas beads sets. This is my reason for logging this information because you think you will remember and then when you sit down to make the beads you cannot remember what you used last time.

Creating the Purple Opal Lampwork Focal Bead

This Purple Opal Lampwork focal bead was created with a clear core, striking orange, Rhea Double Helix, and Echo Double Helix. I am not 100% if if I used Rhea or clear. The color was so much prettier than I expected with the plum purple and lavender colors with blue and aqua accents.

sunken treasure lampwork beads

Sunken Treasure Lampwork Beads

This Sunken Treasure lampwork bead turned out beautiful. Adding multiple transparent colors creates a beautiful multicolor bead. The fine silver and mesh almost make this bead look like sunken treasure. It might be interesting to add gold and silver mica to the inner core to see if it looks like sunken coins. This bead also has shimmering goldstone within the layers. It could almost be too much together at once, but the beads are so interesting this way.

Floral Focal Beads

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.

Valentine Frit

Valentine Frit

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.

Iron Oxide Frit, Oh My!

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. It also shows all the color inside under daylight balance lights.
