Ocean Wave Bead
In this workshop we will be looking at the gravity wave technique I use within my own Ocean beads. The challenge is to create and reflect the movement of water within your beads. There are lots of options for this design and in this class we will be looking at the use of Reduction and Striking glass , the use of Goldstone and how to swirl your glass to make unique patterns in your beads.
I will be demonstrating the basic technique for you and you will then have an opportunity to create a bead of your own with the information you have gained during the first part of the lesson.
To take this class it is important that you are not a complete beginner and that you can make a basic round bead and you have had some experience of encasing. You will however learn how to work with clear glass to create deep encasement so just a little experience is fine but this class is not suitable for a complete beginners.
