Metal and Dichroic

I sure had fun making these 2 beads. The first bead is a test bead where I wanted to see if I can apply color and silver to a bead simultaneously. It worked. So on the second bead I encased it with dichroic and gold foil before application of silver and color.

Ellipse Focal

It was great fun using this new Ellipse shape tool from Zoozii's. I like the off center design which ensures that the piece will not flip upside down when worn. The peacock eyes are made with raku or Reichenbach R108 twisties.
