There is something truly magical when you blend reactive glass and silver glass together in lampwork beads. This combination creates something that looks a bit like abalone shell with the iridescence mixed with the organic mix. This almost looks like a landscape.
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.
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.
These beads were created with a white core with Rhea pink over the core. Then encased in Clio then reduced. Accents of gold mica and silver foil are perfect. The color is very beautiful in ranges of pink, peach, fuchsia with purple hues.
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.
