I love how these beads turned out if I say so myself.
I used a graphite roller to make the different shapes but then finished them off in the flame to lose some of their regularity and eveness.
The swirls are made by sticking a thin rod of clear glass into the bead whilst it is hot and then twisting. Quite an ingenious trick but so simple.
