I love the light green ones I created earlier in the week. The color was serendipity, created when I was mixing scrapes for bead guts. I attempted to recreate the green hue - close but not quite. I also found a good tool for making texture around the cap of the bead.
I wondered what it would look like if I made a basic black bead and highlighted it with mica powders. I am not sure if I like the results or not. The first was gold with blue caps.
The next I colored monotone in green.
I had yellow left over from earlier in the week, so I grabbed another texture plate and went to town. The first was antiqued with black ink.
The next beads used up the last of my yellow clay. I tried a bit different end cap this time using a little Kemper star cutter.
By the way. have you noticed the difference in my photos? I invested in a light box and have been learning to use it in the last two picture taking sessions. It really makes a difference.
