I'm not sure it's available in the Uk already? I know Maria Louisa sells it (not sure it's in stock now though  Huh). It's a quite "cheap" (compared to other silver colors!) and a stunning glass, gives such great colors and a nice modest MOP shine  Cheesy.







Anyone else got pics to share of beads made with this color  Smiley?

Wow you all, thanks  Kiss! It's on a base of clear, the trick is not to heat the bead too much after encasing, it just needs to strike once. Tricky, but if you can do it, you'll love the purples!

yay - got some nice colours in this!! But I have come to the conclusion that silver brown does not like effetre clear!! I have 3 that have cracked on me. It likes the vetrofond - haven't yet tried lauscha ... not sure as it doesn't tend to like silver glass.....

I wonder if it would encase with effetre in a coloured transparent?Huh?

I finally managed to play with mine...I didn't get any purples or pinks but I still like what I got.  Considering silver glass normally produces pooh for me  Roll Eyes



You can't see in the picture but I got a beautiful mother of pearl effect.

Well some times I love this glass - and other times it infuriates me!

I do find that I can get great colours  - but I get a lot cracking on me!! This one was fne yesterday - and today it cracked - two lines right down the middle. Now isn't this thermal shock? So did I not keep enough heat in it? and how can I keep the nead hot without melting the design in - I don't have this problem with other glass! Once it's made - do I keep it warm fo r a while at the upper part of the flame till the heat stablises?



This one almost exlploded


but check out the colours!! It's never done this before - I can only think that I must have encased with a stray rod of bullseye - but I'm sure I didn't! I do have two batches of siilver borwn - one clear and one brown. I'm gonna have to make a note which one I use each time!

Anyway - it wasn't all bad - here are the success stories









now if I can just tame the beast!

Beautiful beadies Trudi - such a shame about the cracks!

I'm still getting squat-diddly.  Can someone go over the basics again with me - I've re-read this post so many times!   Grin

Hey, I got colour Shocked

I was so close to hiding it away in disgust but decided to give it one last chance Cheesy



Not the most brilliant bead ever as I was almost certain I wasn't going to get any colour. This is silver brown over effetre black with trails of clear.
