Love Heart Pendants in the Making

Lampwork glass hearts shiny before etching

I am working on a new collection of my Love Heart Pendants. I have the name and I'm finalising the colour palette so I spent yesterday at the torch making some test beads. It's always a bit of a lottery making test beads (obviously!) but the kiln fairies were kind and blessed me with some pretty beads. 

They always look so lovely cleaned up and sparkling in the sun. It seems such a shame to drop them into the etching fluid... but when they're done I LOVE the frosted finish more. Somehow it seems to accentuate the sparkle of the cubic zircon and silver droplets
