Now that I've got this tool figured out on how to silver core my glass beads, I've been practicing quite a bit. This top bead is called a "Wave Bead" . Very fun to make.This one is made from silver glass, so it turns a few different colors.
This one has a base of clear with some added silver leaf and glass frit which helps to create the webbing effect.
Several colors of Violet frit are in this one.
This one was very hard to photograph so this is the second go round and it came out better than the first one. This is a special blend of glass frit that even has a bit of goldstone in it. It's very different.

Here are a few more of the Big Hole Beads...
A deep black with silver leaf heavily encased with clear for a little magnification. It makes me think of the universe.
