Bead Table Wednesday

This picture most acurately shows the green color of the beads interrupted.

This pic is interesting to me because the butterfly  is fired at low fire cone 06 with a high fire glaze cone6.  The gold color is from some Gilder's Paste that  I got at a bead show recently.  It is able to be polished  when it dries.  The gray color is a glaze that would have fired a nice blue if fired high enough.  But the gray is sort of  cool.
Green stoneware beads firing interrupted by power outage a few days ago.  So the green may just be this color one time!!  I am using them to make a bracelet for my daughter-in law-for Mother's Day.  She is the best Mom ever!!  Some clasps some ear wires and bead caps I made also in the photo.  Two of them say MOM.

  4. Lucky girl. Sometimes the most interesting results originate when something is done differently, it will certainly be a unique piece.
