This is a quick “post & run” article about a new series of focal mini sets that incorporate dichro, shards and etching. I’m really excited about the “Sparkly Glacier” line and see lots of possibilities to extend on this idea. It’s the best of both worlds: beach glass with it’s soft matte texture, but deep inside you can see the sparkle and glow of dichro. Very cool!
Here are the first beads in this new line, that I just started to list this week.
Glow Sparkly Glacier (with copper dichro)
Copper Sparkly Glacier (with silver dichro and fine silver droplets)
Denim Sparkly Glacier (with silver dichro and fine silver droplets)
Let me know what you think about the contrast of dichro and beach glass. Any ideas for additional colors that you would like to see?
