Default Magic Mosaic Shards Tutorial

Hi all, I have an almost free add on for this tutorial. I have discovered another recipe for the shards that knocked my socks off! If you have already purchased my tutorial and would like the add on, go here on my Etsy page to purchase. I was going to give it for free but I need an easy way to distribute these and account for my time to manage all the emails. It is only $2.00 I have been sitting on this for awhile and it is time to share. Please be fair and do not purchase if you have not purchased my tutorial. Also, I am offering a $5 discount to those who have not purchased the tutorial for the short term.

Link to add on: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1262364...hards-tutorial
Link to tutorial : https://www.etsy.com/listing/1186542...rets-revealed?

And some pictures to get you excited. All these beads have the new recipe for the shards!

Thank you so much












It is ready!



After many months of experimenting with these magic shards, I am now ready to share what I have learned with you!

Tutorial includes:

1.My theory on why these shards do what they do! This will allow you to create your own magic shards recipes. Now how exciting is that??!!

2. Blue Magic Mosaic Shard recipe featured in the beads that are included in the photographs in this sale. Beads are not included in this sale. The sale is only for the digital Ebook.

3. I also share wonderful photographs which includes the glass recipes for 15 bead designs which I have created so you can have a head start on creating your own gorgeous beads incoporating this shard recipe.

4. Clear photographs and text instructions teaching you how to blow your own shards.

5. Tips on how to use Magic Mosaic shards in your beads

6. Full rights to create as many shards and beads using my tutorial for sale and for your own personal use.

The tutorial consists of 29 pages and 35 photographs.

Your timing is impeccable! I have spent the past two days making nothing but shards, and was at a point where I thought I was just hopelessly shard-challenged. <skips off to buy tut>

So excited!

Wow, you are super-fast on the email as well! Thanks!

I have skimmed, and already have had a lightbulb moment with something I was doing not quite right. Looks like a very nice tut!

Jacqueline, I've just finished savoring the copy you sent me, and once again you have created magic!

I wish I could have your creativity for just one day....I'd be dangerous!

Got mine right away! Although I have blown shards before, I can't wait to try out this technique.

Blowing shards can be so addictive. One day I made about 8 silvered ivory shards haha. I just could not stop.

It is fun. It is like being a kid again blowing soap bubbles. I remember as a kid blowing bubbles in my bedroom by the window so I could see all the swirling colors of the soap in the bubbles. I wanted to somehow capture the designs.

How many detailed shard recipes are included in this new tutorial?

Thank you.

Hi Neomi, yes I am still up ( insomia, hehe)

Maybe I should try this again to simplify so everyone can understand. Sorry if there was any confusion.

The beauty of this tutorial is the fact that I reveal my own theory on why these shards behave how they do. As I state in the tutorial, I am no glass scientist but I believe I have a good basic understanding of this. Because of this, I have been playing for months now, coming up with different recipes.

I disclose my favorite recipe in tutorial.
There is one shard recipe in the tutorial.
I disclose 15 bead recipes that incorporate this shard recipe. The recipes are set up just like they were in my first tutorial with their own separate page, one large photograph and bullet text descriptions to enable easy printing (printing one page at a time to take to the torch to work )

I include photographs and text description on how I blow shards.

I include text tips on how to use the shards to get the most out of them.

I may include a bonus section with more shard recipes if there is enough interest. I will email the revised tutorial with the bonus section to those that have already purchased if I do this. I really encourage you to play though. It is half the fun of using these type of shards. The discovery process is so much fun. I am a shard blowing maniac now hehe. I lie in bed at night trying to think up new combinations.

I just need a couple of days to catch my breath as writing this wore me out, hehe.

I hope this helps and thank you for your interest!

Hey all, they have all been sent, thank you.

Now the bad news. Due to fatigue yesterday I had a few small errors in the tutorial that my proof readers did not catch. They couldn't as they do not work with glass. Anyways, lesson learned. Have only lampworkers proof read!

I have deactivated the rest of the tutorials on Etsy so I can clean it up and add a bonus page of some recipes. Then I will resend to all that purchased yesterday and today.

Then I will reactivate on Etsy.

Sorry for any inconvenience. I am officially not perfect LOL

Hi DeAnne, thank you

Well Jane, I have always heard those studio tutorials are successful so I am crossing my fingers for you.

Four more days left of shows for me this year. Cannot wait for it to be over!
I thought it would be nice to have that extra hour of sleep last night but instead I am up an hour earlier haha.
