Oil Stones

The pictures do not even come close to showing off how lustrous and metallic these are.

They're made on a core bead of black that has been wrapped in light Silver Plum.

On top of the Silver Plum I wound on strands of Double Helix Psyche and Aurae, melted them in just a little bit to make a raised and webbed surface. Finally I reduced the silvered glass to make lots of oily blue and gold metallic highlights.

If you look carefully at the reflection in this bead you can see the ginko tree outside my desk window.

Those are fabulous. So very special...and I'm jealous of that tree! Yellow fall leaves have always been my favorite!
