After buying a new lentil press at Flame Off I have been trying out various colour combinations and styles. The lentil above is about 28mm in diameter, has a white core overlaid with cobalt blue, clear and twisted silvered ivory glass. I love working with cobalt blue it is one of my favourite colours.
Another 28mm lentil below. I wrapped the white base with silver leaf and then rolled it in green and blue frit (tiny shards of glass). I love the way that when it is re-heated the silver turns a lovely shiny gold. It is quite a difficult bead to photograph and I know this shot doesn't really do the bead justice.
