I've been playing a lot with murrini this last week. Because murrini reacts differently on different colors of glass, sometimes I test out different styles before I make a more intricate bead. So I've started making these little hearts with a single slice of murrini on them. That way I'm not wasting it if it doesn't turn out how I'd hoped, but if it works out, then I have some cute little hearts.
The murrini slices in these heart beads are from Lori and Kim. I topped each one with clear for a magnified effect. The murrini on the right is called Mystery Spot, so that was definitely one I wanted to test out before putting it on a turtle, which I eventually did.
And here's some more Mystery Spot, only this time on a goth turtle.
Veiled rubino is a pink glass that I just got in the mail and was dying to try. So I made this turtle's shell out of it and added a Beach Umbrella murrini (from Lori and Kim) to top it off, then poked it while it was hot and added clear to trap the tiny bubble inside.
