How Turquoise & Ivory Glass Plus Silver Make This Lampwork Bead Beautiful

March 05, 2021

Turquoise and ivory lampwork bead

Turquoise and ivory glass is such a classic combination to begin with but used in combination with fine silver just really bumps it up to another level. Both colours of glass react not only with each other but also with the the metal to produce some stunning effects.

In this bead you can see the reaction in the form of the dark patterning around the middle of the bead highlighted with tiny silver speckles. If you look closely you can see some much more subtle marbling and striations in the glass that are just so pretty. And the cherry on the cake? That shimmer of fine silver, gold toned in places, that has been left by silver leaf burnished onto the surface of the hot bead.
