How is it that this tut has been around for 3 years and I missed it? I have always wondered how you made those beautiful beads! I'll have to try it. Thanks!

Okay I was playing a bit, and totally forgot about pulling the points and covering them with clear so I ended up with cabbage roses instead of pine cones lol but it was fun and I learned a lot! Next time, I will follow the tut more closely (as in print it out and take it to the torch next time instead of winging it from memory!). Here is what I ended up with.

Those are so pretty Sonja! The pale pink ones are especially lovely, and the red ones are very striking. I hate working with red - it's so dark when molten that I can't see what's what!!

Aimee, in looking at the beads, do you use a lighter color on the petals and then a darker, smaller dot on top of each petal? I love the bubblegum pink beads. They remind me of Confederate roses.

Gosh, I wrote this tutorial SO long ago - I keep meaning to write an expanded, updated version...but life just keeps getting in the way!!

The first thing I want to say is there's no right or wrong - trying something slightly different is how you create new styles!! When I do these I usually have an opaque dot covered by a transparent dot. I often use white, but sometimes layering a transparent color over another color will give you a cool color gradient. And I've also done smaller layered dots, just the way Sonja did, for a nice multicolor effect.

Second attempt wherin I discover Slytherin spread thin doesn't look like leaves anymore, but like a shadow. I made the core half yellow and half clear green to push the look of it being a flower, and used white dots with red overlapping to make the petals. Next time I think I'll do a solid wrap of clear around the yellow to give it some space from the first row of petals.
