More of my torch fired enamel beads. A variety of beautiful colors for the 18 mm loopy beads and the 14x16 mm woven beads.
I love coating the metal beads with glass enamel using a small torch. The spinning of the bead, the choosing of colors, watching the colors blend, it's almost therapeutic.
Sometimes the color combinations are a complete surprise. The nature of the torch, the variation of heat on where you place the bead in the flame, the mixing of colors, timing, so many variables.
You just have to wait until the bead cools to see what you got!
