horses!

There are many steps to developing a new bead.   I have been trying my hand at making some horses by a request from one of my etsy buyers.  This one was my favorite.

working on detailing a little better, and trying to get the eyes just right.  I need to pull super thin strings of black glass for the pupil and the mane is made with latticino cane that I made.  This one has silvered ivory...... I heat up the end of a dark ivory rod and roll it in fine silver sheet, then pull it into stringers which are long thin strands, then use for accent.
