Swamp Witch

A big hole bead with hand decorated brass bead caps and a brass core. The caps have X X Xs hand stamped on one side and O O Os on the other, for hugs and kisses. The glass bead is a murky, watery, swampy thing - all transparent shades of transparent olive and honey with bubbles floating around in it.

Perfect for that swamp witch in your life who cast her bayou spell on you.

I love both of your new beads! How do you make the bubbles? One at a time or with something you roll the bead over?

Celeste - roll the bead in a miniscule amount of baking soda and then encase it. When it's heated the soda turns to gas and bubbles are formed. Be careful, if any soda is not encased it will leave pits in the glass. For a bead like this just a few grains around the middle of the bead is enough.
