Purple Cloud Lampwork Bead Set

Purple Cloud Lampwork Bead Set

Is this set pretty or what? I just love these colors together. They also photographed beautifully. 

This set is made with Songbird frit over periwinkle, dark purple, and lavender blue etched to a soft matte finish. I tried to recreate this set and it took me several sessions to figure out which color I used for the light purple. Although this set would look pretty with pink matte beads too I think.

fuchsia lampwork focal bead

Twisted Striped Lampwork Bead

A customer reached out to me and asked if I could make a focal bead to match this set and turn into a necklace. Since I knew which colors most of these beads were, I decided to give it a try.

Twisted Shimmer Lampwork Beads

Twisted Shimmer Lampwork Beads

These bead turned our really interesting and have a bit of an earthy fall look. These were created by mixing glass and frit and pulling it into a stringer. Then when they were applied to the bead, they create an interesting twist with gold aventurine shimmer. The gold aventurine really shows up nicely and you can even see it in the static pictures.

Fall Twist Shimmer Lampwork Beads

Fall Twist Shimmer Lampwork Beads

These beads turned out so interesting. Almost like a plaid pattern on top of fabric. These was created with some multicolor twists with intense black accents over shimmering gold aventurine. The gold aventurine ads a nice subtle sparkle to these beads. I put this over some fall colors. This would have looked nice over opal yellow and moccasin.

Shimmer Twist Lampwork Beads

Shimmer Twist Lampwork Beads

These beads were a bit of a happy accident. In the twisted stringer, I completely forgot to add black. However, it really created an interesting look. These beads have gold aventurine in the twists which adds a nice shimmer to the beads.

Blue Chalcedony Frit

Blue Chalcedony Frit

These beautiful beads were made with different base glass colors and the same reactive Gaffer blue chalcedony frit. It is pretty amazing how different all the reactions are just by using different base glass colors. This frit really surprised me on how pretty the beads turned out. They created a nice organic look & feel.

Sunken Treasure Lampwork Beads

Sunken Treasure Lampwork Beads

This beads got their name because they remind me of sunken treasure. They have a mixture of transparent colors over silver foil and silver mesh. Adding transparent colors over the silver was a great effect and added more colors to the beads. In some beads, I added gold or silver mica flakes to add extra shimmer. These beads also contain shimmering bands of gold aventurine.

Gold Mica Organic Lampwork Beads

Gold Mica Organic Lampwork Beads

This is a new style of bead compared to what I normally make. It combines a few different techniques together and I am pleased with the results. The surface effect was created by adding reactive glass colors (turquoise, silver glass, ivory, intense black, silvered ivory stringers). The silver glass was reduced and the entire top was encased.

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.

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'.

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.

pink floral lampwork bead

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.
