Torch Songs

New hearts, so many new hearts.

I've been torching like crazy getting ready for a trunk show this weekend at my local beads store.
Come see me this Saturday at Let's Bead in East Rochester, New York.

Now, for some beady info.

The heart on the left is super simple. One color of glass - Effetre pastel Ivory with a little fine silver wire wrapped around it and melted in.

The heart on the right also starts out with a base of ivory glass. Then a strip of fine silver foil was wrapped around the middle and the silver was encased with light transparent tourquoise. When you start melting things get wild.
