When you mention silver and beads, most people will automatically think of beads made out of silver.
I love using Silver in my glass beads. I mostly work with silver wire or foil, but I do have an experiment on the go with silver shavings.
You can also use the silver in the foreground of a pattern, above left I used silver foil to help make those galaxy type swirls... the bead on the right is silver simply encased in glass which is an effect I love in transparent glass.
For my regular readers, silver was the main "ingredient" in the glass bead set I made to go with my Elements Set by Alex Cramariuc.
Silver is definitely one of my favourite decorations to use as it's so versatile!
What silver effect do you prefer out of the ones I've shown here?
