That is one gorgeous bead Sal, really lovely colours. Smiley

In theory this is a simple technique but you can get it wrong, Sal's explanation is very clear though.

Do you mean this?

If so, it's actually quite easy.

1) Start with a skinny barrel in the "tornado" colour
2) Put rings of clear around the barrel - make sure they don't touch - alternatively trail a spiral of clear around the barrel like a screw thread or helter skelter.
3) Gently melt the clear into the barrel. Don't marver,
4) Encase the whole bead.
5) I squashed this bead to exaggerate the spiral effect but you can leave it round.



Thanks for posting this Sal, I was directed to your instructions by Karen   'Essex Girl'

            All very helpful. 
                                       Thanks folks.

                                                        Regards  . . .  Andy

I've been trying to figure out this technique for ages, thought it might have been some sort of 'gravity swirl' type method...!  Undecided

Thanks! I will definitely be giving it a go when I next get to the torch...
