Opaque Brown Handmade Lampwork Glass Beads




I got a little distracted making beads and trying to get some really great photos to share with you.  I see I need to finish my browns I have been working on.

I am going to list them in order of glass color.  These are opaque brown glass beads I made a short while ago.

You can find these on my Brown Bead Page in my Artfire Shop.  You'll need to scroll down towards the bottom of the page to see them all.

First we have light brown beads:

These beads you have just seen have all been made using Moretti glass.  If you make it to Italy, maybe you can get a peek into how these colors are made.  Each shade of glass has it's own recipe and can change slightly from batch to batch like dye lots of fabric.  I will go into the transparent browns at another time as this is getting pretty long.

Hope you have enjoyed you journey into my opaque brown beads.
