I'm Imploding


I'm imploding, and not just because we are dealing with our own version of Mean Girls at our house. I am so exited to try this technique called Implosion. I have bought beads in the past in this style, never knowing I could do anything like it with the type of glass I use. After playing around with it yesterday I found so many design possibilities. It's hard to see in these two sample beads, but the designs are extremely dimensional. Of coarse the design that sparked my interest in this is the one I am having trouble with most, and the experimental ones I am getting excellent results. I am going to be making "real" beads using this technique on Thursday, until then it's back to dealing with the drama of teenagers.

(That includes grown adults at work too) :)
