Lauscha Buck Horn

I really like how this bead. It is 43mm long and 14mm wide. It consists of many of my favrorite colors including copper green, red roof tile, and of course raku. However, for me, the the reaction I got from the Lauscha buck horn. Normally I get a blah translucent beige color but in this bead it developed patches of translucent coral orange. More experiment must be made so I can reproduce this effect :)

Raised Floral Tab Focal

Spring is upon us and its time to bring out the pastel palette and garden themes. Here is a large tabular focal bead 40x24x10mm. I used various Moretti and Lauscha glass as base , encased silver pink dichroic to give it depth and sparkle, sprinkled frit on the surface, flatten, and added raised flowers on one side.
