Day and night glass roses by fairyfrog Day and night glass roses by fairyfrog
Rose beads!
I'm just learning to make these and they are a part of my first batch. I am planning to make some like these for a necklace.
I chucked these on a pretty little branche and use it for easter decoration! :)

Double helix and Effetre glass, photographed in evening sunlight. The mirror shine of this glass is astonishing but makes is hard to portray these and do them justice. - But I like the shine! :heart:

Both are about 2 cm across and got a hole straight through them.

As always with your glass flowers, they take on a look of marvel and magic all on their own. Ah, if I could array myself in jewellry made with these!

Oh, I might! The thought didn't cross my mind, really. I need to learn how to make them properly first, they are a bit too frail to ship in the state they are right now. I need to attach the sepal's better. *nods* :)

They are based on a lampwork tutorial you can find here:

:) These are lovely.
For the photo issue, you might try taking pics of them *just* before the sun actually peeks over the horizon in the morning. That's about 7am right now where I am. You get clean glare-less light, and I find it makes for good product pics.

Ahh.. indirect light is always the best! It's a bit tricky with photographing up here in Sweden. In winter it never gets really light (I have to take my shots at exactly mid day), but the summer light is awesome.

Hmm.. glare-less lense..? Interesting!

Not glare-less lense, glare-less light. I find that the indirect morning light doesn't cause glare on polished surfaces. Indirect daytime light can still cause glare easily, but the morning light doesn't since the sun isn't yet up.

Thank you! It's either a dark cobalt or very dark plum color I'm not sure which one of them it is :)

Thank you so much!
