I just LOVE my new bead series! I'm excited because I've had a bit of a creative drought as of late and am pleased to finally feel myself coming out of it!
I call this the Distressed Gold
series because that is basically what I'm doing; Working the gold leaf in the flame to the point where it starts to break down. It leaves behind a very interesting look! (at least that's what I think - Take a look and see what you
think!) Here are 3 of the large flat disks which are about 25mm x 25mm x 10mm:
And a couple of my Cicciona
beads. (Cicciona in Italian means Chubby
and that's exactly what these barrel beads are!) They are also a pretty good size at about 24mm x 18:
Plus I made some companion type beads, as well:
Thanks for looking!
