Dancing with Dichro

I can’t believe it’s February already, the new year is just flying past!   Definitely time I gave some attention to my blog as well as my beads.

Lately it been mostly about using dichroic as I have rather a lot of it in my stash and I love it, ??????????????????????????????? but as it costs so much I worry about wasting it, so I’m trying to find ways of using it to its best advantage. Here are some of the results:

This is the patterned dichro on a black background, could be a bit boring if I used too much of it  although I do prefer the pinky colours.

I think I’m happiest with the plain stuff, although

sometimes it doesn’t show up so well on the brighter

colours, as in these red and pink beads.

But In the end I’ve decided that dichro is at its best when you con see the lovely sparkle revealed in clear glass, as in these ‘Blossom’ beads photographed against a clear blue February sky.

Now that’s something you don’t see very often!??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
