Item details

I have had many requests over the last year as to how I do my silver glass swirl beads and so at last I have found the time to write a tutorial to explain the process. The tutorial itself is based around the bead you see in the first photograph but I take some time at the end to go through some other colour combinations that look pretty and share the receipes of a few with you including the beads pictured.

This tutorial is for intermediate students or beginners that have a good success rate with encasing. I work over a GTT Lynx Torch with an 8lt Oxycon and this tutorial has not been technique has not been tested on a Hothead.

The Tutorial is a PDF File, 44 Pages long and includes 98 colour photographs of every step of the process and the glass and tools required.

It is 3.32 mb in size and I will send it to you via email within 48 hours of recieving your order. I am based in the UK so please be aware of time differences!

Please make sure that you give me the email address you would like it sent to when you order and remember to check your spam box incase it gets posted there.

This is an electronic file and is a non refundable purchase you will not recieve a hard copy but you will be able to print out your PDF copy.

I hope you enjoy making this bead as much as I have, I would love to see what you do with this tutorial, do feel free to send me your photos to bazaarbarnstaple [!at] If you are unsure as to wether it is a standard you are up to do feel free to message me and we can decided if it is ok for you.

Thank you

Jennie :)

Thank you so much for putting this together to share! I just had a blast practicing this technique, and made some pretty beads in the process. The instructions were extremely clear, and the photos were a huge help. Now I just need a bigger bead roller :)
