New twist on Shards !
Glass shards are made by making a large hollow bead - some as large as a Christmas Ball - decorating them, layering them with dots or silver, then breaking them ! Ouch! The shards are then added to the surface of a bead. Trying to be creative, and come up with something new, I found some glass I'd had for awhile, had no clue if it was compatable with any other glass I had, so I added some shards to the surface, left them raised, and popped the bead in the kiln. Ta Daaaaa - out came this beautiful bead. A new technique added - hope you like.
