Loving the Green

Gaia - that is. The iridescent metallic green glass made by Double Helix Glass Works.
A leaf bead that Gaia over transparent grass green and teal. The Gaia has green, blue and violet flashing through it. These two beads are just wild in the sunlight.

This pile of beads will be all wired together with silver and become a bracelet.
The small round ones have a core of pale opalino blue encased in Messy Cirrus. The were heavily etched. The contrast of the ultra shiny leaves and the satiny, beach glass like rounds is very nice. I may also throw in some labradorite for good measure.

I had a wonderfully long session at the torch yesterday. I cannot wait to see the beads - it felt really good while I was working.

p.s. happy Saint Patrick's day.

Looks like you have cracked the code for Gaia.
