In getting ready for the jewelry market at Spruill Center for the Arts, I made more glass beads using new silver glass colors, Gaia and Clio, as well as my old favorites Thallo and Aurae. i have to confess that i was unable to get any really nice colors out of Gaia. i found it much harder to work with than Thallo and i wasn't impressed with the colors after encasing:
The Clio beads were much nicer. showing an interesting range of colors and a nice metallic sheen when encased:
I'll definitely be working with this color more in the future.
