Playing with Chalcedony Again! Love that glass!


I've been playing with Chalcedony Glass again!
I made these two beads using Chalcedony glass,
but the bead on the left I covered with
silver leaf.
I was hoping that
the silver leaf
would bring out more color,
but
it didn't.
You can see that beneath the silver
leaf there was some
beautiful color development, but
when I added the silver leaf,
the colors became more muted
and a hint of amber came to the surface.
It's still a pretty bead, and
yes, the other bead was meant
to have a twisted shape!
















The colors developed beautifully in this bead!
I'm going to make earrings out of these beads!
















I
continue to
love the way
Chalcedony glass
makes
bones
look amazing!
I love the added touch of silver wire!



















I
call these beauties
Slipped Discs!













Here are some mismatched
earrings.
I love them!
Now, I have a question for you,
Should I sell them,
or
should I sell them?
Hmmmmmmm!

Sell them! They're beautiful; and the more mismatched and unusually shaped, the better! :)

I love the silver dots on the chalcedony, that turned out great!

And yes, you should definitely sell the earrings :)
