“Aion” is the name of a silver glass color by Double Helix.
It reacts in the flame to beautiful blue, purple and goldish tones if you know how to handle it. I bought 33cm of this magic some time ago and now I’m experimenting with it, finding out little by little how to tickle out the colors…
This pendant is made with a squash bead (German tutorial by anibeads available here).
The Aion was still a bit opaque, but I got behind the secret of striking it (at least getting a bit of color and a hint of golden glow) and tried again to make a squash:
It’s so difficult to take pictures of these beads because of the translucency that can’t quite be caught in pixels.
Here some more beads using all only clear glass and Aion:
Hope you like them…I’ll be back with more sometime soon
