Beer Bottle Beads with Gold Leaf

GoldBeer

Once you try one new thing, more new ideas pop into your head that need to be tried!  I used to make these beads just by melting and dripping the glass (no decoration).  A couple of weeks ago I started rolling the glass in frit before I melted and dripped them, and I loved the result.  This week, I have been dripping the glass and then rolling them in gold leaf.  Love this too, and can’t wait to put all of this jewellery together.

I am making this new range for Murray Bridge Regional Art Gallery where I will be Artist of the Month for January and February.
