Magic of Silver Glass

One of my most favorite thing to do at my torch is play with my stash of silver glass. These glass are made by various enterprising US glass manufacturers like Trautman, Double Helix, Precision, and Striking Colors. Each color consists of silver which can result in "boro" like effect in soft glass.

This bead was made using an assortment I recently purchased from Flamedame. I used blue silver water, green envy, green dali lama, and seaweed to try out the colors. Needless to say I am very happy with the result and will definitely by playing some more in the next few days.
