water sprites

i am dreaming of water that's not frozen.
new beads - like swirling water.

made with a bunch of different rod ends of transparent blue. each bead has a bit of dichroic encased in their center for sparkle. they are simple to make - start with a round bead, mash it flat, spot heat an edge and twist with a matching stringer to make a swirl. keep spot heating and twisting the edges until you have it as swirly as you want, anneal the whole thing and onto the next bead.

hundertwasser - "end of waters"

Wow, these are beautiful! I'm so impressed you made them, I wouldn't know where to start (and thats even with your instructions!) I love the little birds you made too, they will definitely look great in the nests, can't wait to see how they turn out :)
