“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 Winking smile

    Deine neuesten Glaszaubereien sind umwerfend schön!
    Ist das Drahtwerk deine Kreation oder hast du da ev. einen guten Buchtipp?

    Begeisterte Grüsse

      Dankeschön für das Lob, Alpi!
      Das Drahtwerk ist meine Interpretation einer Anleitung aus einem englischen Buch: Encyclopedia of wire jewelry techniques von Sara Wither. Das Buch ist wirklich gut gemacht und gibt viele Techniken für das Arbeiten mit Draht.
