Sea Inspired Focals with Silvered Ivory

On the post today, the focus is to show how silvered ivory stringer can be used in a variety of ways with both transparent and opaque glasses.

When I visited Jean at Nortel back in April, she asked me to test a few Effetre glasses that she had in stock and needed to be highlighted to bead makers.

In this post, I used one of them paired with a favourite CiM - Creation Is Messy glass to create a sea inspired bead set of focals.

Each of these flat tab beads would be lovely as a pendant or multiples combined into an amazing necklace.

Each focal bead was hand formed with waves of Effetre Storm Surge with a stormy sky of rare CiM Sea Mist Ltd Run

Sea Mist was created by CiM as a core of clear, encased in transparent blue, encased in clear.
A stripe of silvered ivory stringer creates crests of waves on each bead.

A few spacer beads of each of the glasses are included in this set.

I really love Effetre Storm Surge #784 and look forward to how to use it in another bead style.
Contact Jean and Jennifer if you are interested in purchasing some of this Special Buy glass as once it is gone... it may not be available again.
