No it isn't the disk technique with the dots on the side, I mentioned that in my first post. Those layers look different, deep layers on top of one another and uniform.
I want the more flattened layers beside each other and random ripple look like the waves on a beach or agate or abalone shell.
The pictures of beads like Haley's beads have a different look than the disk or twistie technique. I want a larger flatter bead that has the layers but and with more movement in the ripples.
I'm pretty sure it is as discussed, using a grooved marver or knife/razor to make the lines. Then creating the ripples with rake or clear rod. It will just be a couple weeks before I get to try....

Here are some reference photos from my 'inspiration board':

I have a how to on a disc ripple bead using Clio glass from double helix in the Glassline magazine April/May, 2019 - Vol. 32, No. 6.

for the kind of break up on edges that I see in your photos 2,3 and 4 I might try very fine lines of dark ivory stringer

I had to reread your post. Were chasing our tails and yes, you did say not gravity or the disk dot bead. LOL

But just to be sure this isnt it:
The first one is petroleum green. It naturally striates as you work it.
The other is webbing using silver sheet. 2021-01-15 3:42pm
