Working with Clio



Finally, some time at the torch. I've playing with the Clio glass rods (from Double Helix) again. My stash was purchased at the Gathering last year. From the posts on Lampwork, etc. I learned a few tricks for working with it. Thank Goodness for Haley Tsang, and others, who work with silvered glasses and are so willing to post their tips and result beads on the LE forum. Both of these beads contain the precious Clio. One was Clio layered over a cobalt glass base and I think reduced a little too much (the blue bead) and the other was made over a white base with layers of transparent orange and ink blue before the Clio, encasement and shard decorations. I’m pretty pleased with the results. I need more “silver” working time at the torch but onward and upward..
