"I have wound this glass around the mandrel in layers of very fine stretched out wraps, a great technique for something like Pachamama but less effective for this glass. In pulling it out so thin while building up the bead I have lost the impact of individual colour strands and it looks like greyish glass instead of clear."

"The trick to this glass is to heat and swirl and be fluid in your application to get the colour to criss-cross the bead. Autumn hues. This would look great in a focal bead but is not as effective in smaller beads, but pretty all the same."

"This one’s a bit different! Circus Tent is a clear rod with stripes of red, yellow, green, light blue, black and white running through the length of it. When you wind the glass into beads you are left with ribbons of colour suspended within the clear. Circus Tent melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbling. The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's blog.
