By crikey, I think I got it! The perfect combination - BE aventurine green, a slight smattering of raku powder, a quick swirl with the tungsten pick, smoosh, et voila!!!

And you make it sound so easy... (yeah--right).

It is easy! It was one of those "why didn't I think of that before?" moments for me. IRL, the aventurine is just super sparkly! And the amount of time you put into working the raku totally affects the outcome - you'd swear some of these are made with blue aventurine instead of green!

I have wondered how galaxy beads were done. I'll have to give that a try. Beautiful beads.
