Colour of the Month – Green

Well, it’s better late than never around here at the moment!  I’m slowly catching up on everything (I think)!

I just sent the newsletter to my subscribers.  Did you get it?  Did you want to see it?  Just click on the subscribe link and add your email address and I’ll make sure to get it to you.

So November is all about the colour green.  The series will also run into December.  And then I’ll start the next colour of the month in January.  OK?

Green is a pretty frustrating colour to work with in glass.  I don’t know what they have done to it to make it that way, but let’s just say it’s a very tricky colour, and it’s very difficult to create nice patterns with the glass.  I had actually planned a different range of work, but when I went to make the beads the glass was not playing nicely!

Er, so…I made some necklaces like the ones below with very simple round beads.  I’m actually really pleased with how they turned out.  There are so many shades of green.  I have etched the beads on the top necklaces, and left them shiny on the other.  Which version do you prefer?
