Plumb

These are a few of my newest beads....Plumb Bobs. I continue to use a more muted palette that includes some reactive glass, fine silver and silver leaf. The center one didn't photograph great....in real life its much more vibrant.
   

I really wanted to play with the idea of allowing the glass do its thing balanced with a certain amount of control...if that makes sense. Part of the beauty of reactive glass is what it does on its own.




I was inspired by Klimt's work, his color choices and the use of gold. Although there is no gold in these beads, there is a metalic luster.



Just having fun exploring a different side of me and pushing myself to do new work. I don't know if I've arrived anywhere yet but I'm on the road.
