I'm celebrating the first signs of spring with my Springtime collection of glasswork for February and have used shades and tones that put me in mind of crocus petals and early spring flowers. This colourway uses Effetre Purple 272, Special Dark Lemon 412 and Periwinkle 220 with CiM Hades and Effetre 006 clear.
These zingy lime beads show the little yellow Flower murrini and twists of Dark Lellow ribbon twistie under encasement.
These are one of my most favourite kind of beads to make, clear core, ribbon twistie, encased. So pretty and effective.
Cloudbusting shards over CiM Dirty Martini and Reichenbach Antique Green 1012G
My second colourway for February is called 'Shrooms and uses rich colours in woodland tones. I've used CiM Sherwood, CiM Hades Effetre Crimson 432 and Effetre Dark Ivory 276.
A core of 432 with Woodland murrini and encased with Effetre 006. These beads show the murrini both under encasement and as surface embellishment.
'Shroom murrini over a core of Effetre grass green with twistie dots and swipes then encased.
This last little Mini Mo' beads that i have to show you are Red Riverrock shards over CiM Journey and CiM Sangre.
