Inspiring Inspirals

I recently upgraded to a dual fuel lampworking torch and the added heat has given me some lovely options.
This style of bead is generally called a "gravity" bead as you allow gravity some leeway to drag the design down before righting the bead to restore its symmetry. I was fossil hunting in Whitby with some success and it was the little ammonites that made me think of trying this out. I'm calling them my Inspirals and I've got at least 3 colour combos so far.
I particularly love the orange and yellow variety above as they show up the effect really well. There is only one I try out a new style now or just carry on with more and more colours !!

  1. oooh how pretty. That'd look super cute in pink and blue too!.

    I'd say carry on with more colours, and get yourself a nice selection whilst they're going so nicely. I always find that when I change style and then go back to one I did earlier, I can't get it to go identical again.
