I made the same beads as I did the night before. More enamel and frit beads. And another owl and fish too.
Well, kinda. It’s not done. I just got the cloisonne piece done. Still have to make it into a piece of jewelry. I stayed with easy for my first piece and even then some of my wires moved.
This is 1.5 inches. I put silver under the transparent curves and cells but it doesn’t show up that well. I didn’t do any shading, just plain enamels. I wanted to learn the process. Now I can get more intricate and take my time making a piece. I’m still going to turn this into a piece of jewelry just because it’s my first piece.
Still working on square chip beads though….
These are sparkly!! Blue aventurine. I didn’t put the black line around them as I wanted the sparkle to shine through. The spacer beads are made out of veiled cane, some dark green with a lighter green core. They really do look more like they are more on the teal side.
I thought I was done making orange beads but I forgot that I plan to make a bunch of square chip beads and what do you know, the first color I picked up was orange.
Actually, these are more coral in color than orange. The other spacer beads are veiled cane. It’s a weird combination, tobacco and opal blue. I think it’s supposed to look like water and rocks and probably looks better on larger beads.
