Default Encased Layered Triangle Bead Tutorial

Here's how I make my encased triangle beads!

I used periwinkle, transparent dark purple and clear.






finished bead!


Some tips…

Start with a *small* base. These beads can get big without you realizing it! Remember, you’ll be thickly encasing it when you’re all done.

Keep your dots along the side edge of the bead, but not too close to the hole.

Always melt down the previous row completely before applying more glass.

To add depth, use twice as much transparent glass as opaque. This doesn’t mean make your transparent dots twice as big, however. Just add another row on top of the previous row. Like this:


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Be creative and have fun!



Candy

I've been wondering how those were done -- and i was just lamenting the time i spend surfing instead of doing my book work (i'm a great procrastinator!) but more than once i have stumbled on to that one thing that is way worth all the time! and today it was this!

thanks, thanks, thanks

one question -- of course -- the green yellow red bead -- is that clear between the opaques?

thanks again, leslie

Thanks for the great, clear, tutorial! Nice pics, too! Now if I just has some good clear glass.....I've got two outstanding orders, but no clear on the way! Need I say, I don't have encasing down yet? Lovely beads!

Thanks Candy. This is the best explanation I have seen of this bead. I'm trying it today. Just a shame about my dot placement - I'll have to practice that.

Thanks again

Yes.

Edited to say that I might have used trans emerald between the yellow and green. I'm not sure! I made that bead over 3 years ago.

Another thing I didn't mention because I thought it was obvious, I guess, is that you can follow these same steps to make regular triangle beads.

+ =

First 3 steps, plus heavy encasing will make regular triangle beads. The only aspect that I would do differently is that I'd make the dots bigger so that they'd stretch from hole to hole after encasing.
