Love the silver and ivory, along with the other cool reactive soft glass colors!

Here is a set of boro frit beads, I was just playing around with lots of different combos and working with some new colors.

Great work Trey!
what bases and frits were your last 3 beads done on, they are really beautiful!

12-16-2003, 04:05 PM
beautiful, please share glass bases and frit used if you don't mind. Sheila

Holy frit, Batman! Trey, that last set looks very Boro-ish - may I Boro them? (weak pun there, folks!)

Every time I play with frit I get the same ol' , same ol' .... had to do some beads today for a Christmas present, but this thread has inspired me to play with more frit on Friday!

Wow, Trey, very cool - I love 'em!!!!

12-16-2003, 05:57 PM
Trey, those beads are GORGEOUS!!!!! Love the top ones myself, tho I lurve dem all :)

Lluvia, I always enjoy seeing your eye candy -- delish colours, yuuuummy!!!!!!

My fritting and frolicing fave bead is bullseye neolavender, silver leaf, and one of the copper frits (copper ruby I think). It left the coolest patterns...

Yum yum yum yum yummy!

I hate being on buying restriction when Val is offering new toys that I can't get right now (new to me that is)........maybe soon (she said with frit lust in her heart).

Trey, I think the last two sets you posted are my favorites. I said I think cuz I keep changing my mind.

Donni - that looks fumed. Very nice.

Paula - it's gotta be the green with purple. It's a killer combo.

sigh...off to play in my redux frit free studio......

Mark, you should be ashamed to post such racy glass porn.

Hehehe..that is quite a stash, sure makes mine look piddly. I like how you have it contained too.


12-16-2003, 11:43 PM
Mark, now here you go getting us lampworkers all hot and bothered by these provocative pictures.....

goof ball
12-16-2003, 11:44 PM
Wow! I have to get some of that! All of them are wonderful, especially Donni's and Trey....that green/blue thing you have going on the one, has to be my favorite!

Take care,

12-16-2003, 11:44 PM

Trey, they are all absolutely gorgeous, but I am most curious about this set (if you don't mind saying)--are they on a base of copper green? Can't tell from the photo. Very cool!:clap:

And I meant in my previous post that ALL of everyone else's beads posted here make me drool--not that mine do. lol

Here are some beads made with the same frit stringer : pink trans w/ purple lustre, silver, iris gold, trans periwinkle casing.
Please excuse my halogen lamp lighting!!
(Paula, these are from the pic I sent you)

12-18-2003, 01:38 AM
Lisa, I just tried to PM you but your box is full. The beads are gorgeous!!


12-18-2003, 01:47 AM
Wow Lisa, I love this first one! You are doing some amazing work here, Gorgeous!


12-18-2003, 02:08 AM
Here are my latest--the details and images will be on my site sometime tomorrow. I'm off to bed! :)



12-18-2003, 02:39 AM
Mark honey, it's just not nice to get a girl all worked up like that and then walk away with no follow-through...

I've been fritting too. No one warned me that it is addictive.

Wow Trey! You make me want to give frit another try!! I have frit envy!

12-19-2003, 08:32 PM
Oh man . . . I am so confused! Lately "fritting" and "using silver" and 'organics' have gotten all mixed up in my mind. The ones I posted are not all frits! i don't think the top one had any (a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-h-h-h-h-h-h!!!!). The middle one does -- it is a Powder Pink base with ivory, turquoise, and silver blue frit melted in.

The last one has silver blue frit in it too, but melted all up and then raked. Powder Pink base (accounts for the orange) and turquoise are in that one too.

Thanks Paula for the compliment. I never said anything about the others who posted, but they are SO gorgeous.

Donni: that bead is totally awesome.
Paula: I LOVE those . . . especially the shapes. And the colors. And those silvery ones. Fantastic.

And oh yeah . . . TREY. I see why you started this thread. You have a lot to show off! They are ALL awesome. Someone (I think) commented that they might be boro, but I think they're Morretti. I like the top row the best -- dark with just the right amount of contrast, and seem to sparkle like gold.


12-20-2003, 10:48 AM
My first Bullseye beads - I've only used Moretti/Effetre up until now but that Bullseye Royal Purple made me do it! Nothing fancy, just plain ol' Bullseye red frit:

12-20-2003, 11:16 AM
Cindy: that middle one rocks. It looks like Georgia O'Keefe poppies.


12-20-2003, 11:21 AM
Well, these are not in the same category as all the other gorgeous beads, but they are my first frit experiments. The 2 bluish beads have silver leaf as well. Don't ask me what's up with the bowling pin shape... I just gave up on it after almost an hour.

12-20-2003, 11:28 AM
OOOH how did I miss this thread for a few days? My favorite subject.

12-21-2003, 01:49 AM
Mark I want to come over and play with your toys! I would be beside myself with the unlimited possibilities... mmm How do you decide which ones to use? I am green with envy!!! :p

Carla - gorgeous frit bead! Love it!
