Bee Girl Sparkles
Corny bee jokes aside, this cute little bee girl has been hanging out with my other lampwork glass beads and creating a bit of a buzz.
I was experimenting a bit and she was my first one. I wanted to see what adding silver glass to my wings would do. And she was the result. I found out something...that I prefer silver glass to totally cover the wing area, instead of the tiny dab, that I attempted this first time.
It shows up as much more splotchy in the photo, and has a lovely lustre in person. But if it doesn't translate well in a photo, then it won't sell as easily anyhow. So she's mine. At least for now. Or until I have a show where someone can see her for who she truly is. A honey of a bead.
