The incredible glass beads shown above are by Casey Schell of RavensnRain. Casey made these beads with with Double Helix rods.
"Whether you are making a total pearlescent bead or just adding touches of mystery to your bead work Double Helix is by far the best soft silver line and is one of my favorite glasses to work with. I get better and better results every time I use this glass! By changing how much you reduce the bead you can get a full range of iridescent colors from all of their colors."
Casey Schell, RavensnRain Glass Artist.
Other Thoughts : Use as a stringer, or an add on for a completed bead to save on $$. Actually, a hot head torch is what you need for the reducing atmosphere. An oxygen rich flame will burn out all the beautiful effects you can get with these. Do try them, they are a fantastic addition to your bead making. Use ivory for your base so that you can see all the color reactions.....the double helix rods are full of silver, copper and other metals that will produce exquisite combos.
National Book Lovers Day is a lesser known holiday - much to my disappointment. Its celebrated on August 9th every year. I love books. I love books so much that in my house, every day is Book Lovers Day. Im hoping youll join me in celebrating for this one day at least though. "A book is a gift you can open again and again." – Garrison Keillor "A home without books is like a room without windows." – Horace Mann Books have always held a special place in my heart. They open up a world of new possibilities to me. Each time I come back to a book, I bring fresh experiences and perspective to it, which lets me take something new away from it. Art books are no different. In addition to the bones of the process, the invaluable instruction that they present, they offer an opportunity to dream

Part 2 of a 2 part series on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna gives advice on indispensable tools for beginner glass fusers. In the beginning, I used one larger tool, and that was a Super Star Grinder. It is still running, running, running. Others have come, and some have gone, but this one is still here. For smaller cold working projects, diamond hand pads do a nice job. The next cutting tool that I bought was a saw. My Taurus 3 Ring Saw has worked extremely well for me, and I love what I can do with it that I couldnt do before, but I worked for 2 years before I purchased this nifty item. As for cutters and breakers, I have many, but for me, the Silberschnitt breaker pliers are a must for small (1/4") strip breaking.....saves so much glass. I use both plastic
