Mini Mo' June 2013 - Iguana and Zebra

My first collection for June is called Iguana. I've used Effetre Grass Green 022, Uranium Yellow 070, Lime Green Opaque 212 and some Lime Doodle Shards.
This first bead shows what the striped Iguana twistie looks like swiped in as leaves. The flower petals are made with my Ink Blue petal cane with some Silvered Ivory shards (from the Zebra collection) underneath.
These cheeky cherries are painted with glass over a base of CiM Maraschino encased in clear which has been jazzed up with some Lime Doodle Shards.
Ive used green Iguana canes inside and outside to make this fabulous focal bead. First I made a clear core and decorated that with a spiral of ribbon cane. I melted the twistie in flat and then encased and shaped the glass in to this fab bicone shaped and used the striped cane to create dots and leaves.
Next up is Zebra, a classic black and white collection using Effetre White, Reichenbach Black and classic Silvered Ivory Shard.
The beauty of black and white twistie is that you can use it to create detail within any colour combination by layering a transparent colour over the top. This bead has a white core, a spiral of twistie and a final layer of Effetre Medium Aqua over the top before final shaping and decorating.
This fella here is called Colin and he is another example of using black and white twistie to give detail under a transparent encasement. In his case I have used Effetre Grass Green.
Last up today is this Dark Mushie bead, Ive used the black and white striped can to make the flower and leaf detail.
