EOS-0153

 

Angela (perlaperla) shared this wonderful Opal Bead tutorial on her blog and this week I finally got around to make one too…

This one is done using a base of Moretti black 064 covered in a thin sheet of fine silver on which I applied Reichenbach silverbrown, encased it in clear and added some swirls using a thin rod of Moretti 026, trapped some air bubbles, shaped it all and voilà…

It is described much more quickly than it is done, but it was so much fun and I loved the result so much that the next day I made an even bigger one using other colors. Unfortunately the sun refuses to shine since that bead was made, so I got no pictures of it yet.
