CiM - Creation is Messy - African Violet Ltd Run

The beads within this post are combinations using CiM - Creation is Messy's African Violet Ltd Run. This glass is a dense and saturated transparent indigo. On its own, it is very dark and needs to be thinned out or used in layers to really show it's true color.

This bead started with a simple base of clear.  I created a twisted stringer using combinations of African Violet, Double Helix Kronos 2 powder and stormed Clio and wrapped it around the clear base.

To capture the streams of green and blue, I encased in bead in Effetre clear.
I love the streams of colors that seem to be moving as you roll the bead in the light.

The focal big hole bead below started with a base of CiM Spooky Ltd Run, an opal white glass. I used the left over of the twisted stringer that I had created for the bead listed above which I added to the Spooky base. 
To capture the streams of green and blue, I encased the bead in clear and added 3 silver glass murrini from my stash of Double Helix 2010 limited edition collection.
