Silver Glass and Fine Silver Wire

I have always been fascinated by silver infused glass and how it reacts with different types of glass. I enjoy creating unique effects with CiM - Creation Is Messy or Effetre glasses and silver glass.

In this set of 6 encased round beads, I used CiM Blueberry Muffin Ltd Run as the base glass. This glass is a very dark opal indigo purple that looks almost black when used as a base.

I started with a clear glass core and covered it with the purple glass. I added some dots of Double Helix Notos silver glass and plunged them into the base. 

After a reduction and encasement each dot resulted with several layers of Zephyr clear glass to create the subtle color variation and beautiful mother of pearl shine!

The round beads are about the size of marbles and they are paired with chunky nugget spacers made with a mix of clear and Blueberry Muffin indigo purple glass.

This style of Pendragonfyre beads are named Silvertails for the 99% fine silver wire that I wrap around each round bead. 

For this set the base glass is called CiM - Creation Is Messy Wheatgrass, a bright misty opal green. Although it is said to be a misty opal, I found it to be more of a transparent glass with such a clear and clean fresh green hue.

I have checked availability of these colors as In Stock on Nortel Glass' online shopping cart.
Reach out to Jean or Jennifer at Nortel to add some of these glasses to your next CiM - Creation Is Messy glass order!

Happy torching!
