What are all the materials I would need to make a implosion bead?

You really don't need anything special, just clear glass and some opaques that don't mind being encased, i.e. not red, yellow or orange in large quantities. Seems like there was a tut for this somewhere, let me go look.

ETA OK, I don't know how to post a link, but go to the Tutorials page, and in Free Tutorials, look for "Mandrel wound implosion bead tutorial".

Laura Sparling also has a great "Flurry Bead" implosion tutorial (as well as several other tuts) that she's shared with the community...
