This weeks special bead uses a combination of glass gold rich glass that gives an effect called Faux Boro. I have encased the whole bead in clear glass to trap the metallic effects inside and there are no metallic reduction effects on the surface which makes it perfect to donate to BoC.
If you make lampwork beads and would like to donate to BCCA for the Beads of Courage program here in the UK pop along and check out the artists guidelines here
Almost anything goes, as long as your beads have neat bead holes without sharp edges, no metallic reduction on the surface, are annealed and have been cleaned then they are perfect.
Please raid your fugly jars, sin bins, declutter your kitchen windowsill and send them in. Your beads will bring smiles and will be treasured and cherished.
Have a lovely day, Jolene xx
