These arent exactly silvered stringers but they are silver burnished and are covered in transparent stringers then encased.

Just realized how old this thread is. FWIW the base on both the beads I did is CIM Hades. Some days the blue is easy to get and some days it just won't play nice at all.

Yep. It is IS an old thread, but I revived it for newbies because it has some great ideas in it and was pleased to see kevan saw it for the first time too and found something she wanted to try also.

Sometimes I go way back to the very first posts and I am finding all sorts of terrific ideas.

I am so glad you revived this thread, since I was just wondering this little while ago, now I dont even have to try blind, I can rely on someone elses experience. And there are so awesome colors, and reactions!

there are actually some tutorials out there, I could probably find you one or two. I just get a gather on the tip of a ivory or dark ivory rod, and when it is the size I want, I marver it little to get more cylinder shape, then I wrap this cylinder into the silver foil. Make sure you smooth it out with a paddle or on a marver, if it is not attached well, it just burns off. But when you burnish it it leaves these tiny bubbles, then I just pull it into stringer. I think the trick is to marver the foil really smooth on glass before putting it back on flame.
I hope this helps, I will try to find you now a tutorial.

This is what I found, so read through these threads, and you find maybe something that will work for you. You will notice that not everyone makes them the same way.
Happy torching!

Lorraine, that will be appreciated. I made a whole bunch of silvered stringers, and only the coral one looks like it is gonna work. Should have just stick to the recommended... Now I have a ton of silvered stringers, with not really any use, and wasted a lot of time too. Oh well, at least I know which ones are not gonna really work.

Maybe we can make a list of colors that work and another list of colors that are yucky.

It could be one of those lists that we keep adding to the master list instead of us all posting individually?

Should we add numbers also?

What color did they turn, that you don't like them? If it's brown, you could always make trees and use them for tree trunks.

Most of them did nothing except had couple little balls of silver on them... Just not enough for it to make sense to use them...

Okay, I'll go through all of the posts and start the list.

Then when anyone gets a new color that makes good silvered stringer they can add it.

I have a lot to do tomorrow and Friday but I can start it over the week-end.

I think a list everyone can print out (and laminate) would be great to have at the work bench.

BE French Vanilla is a bit like silvered ivory.

Nothing in 96 CoE that I have tried looks good.

I like silvered Copper Green and silvered Streaky Sapphire.

Okay, I started the list and will get the numbers etc. later. The updates will always be added to the first page so we can easily find them.

Please add pics of beads and posts whenever you get great SS results you want to share. Odd lots are very welcome as a lot of us have a lot of those too.

Erose, What is the Streaky Sapphire? Do you have a number for it? I want to add it to the main list.
