Item details

COE 104

***BEADS ARE NOT INCLUDED**

**I'm selling these in bulk. That means that an unusable sliver or two might make its way into your assortment, despite my efforts to weed them all out.**

**Picture #2 is a representative bag of murrini, so you can get an idea of what a 1/2 ounce looks like. Your bag will be similar, but not identical.**

These murrini measure 2.5 - 6mm.

You will receive 1/2 ounce of murrini chips in assorted sizes and colors.

These are made with Striking Color, TAG and Double Helix glass. Because of this I do NOT recommend them for use on a hothead.

Detailed instructions for the gravity swirled murrini bead are available here: http://lampworketc.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3650516#post3650516

To spot encase, apply the murrini as instructed above, allow to cool, add a dab of clear to the top and gently heat to smooth out the dome. It done correctly the murrini should strike with the heat from the shaping. Additional tips for spot encasing are also given in the link above.

They average 2.5 - 5 mm.

My test beads show optimal results, if they don't get enough heat to strike properly they will be beige, and not overly attractive. Keep in mind this is a striking murrini, different people strike differently, you may or may not get the same colors I achieved. I have a knack for turning silver glass blue. You don't have to encase these, I just think an encasement really makes them pop! I recommend hitting them with a sharp oxy rich flame before encasement.

Skills needed for optimal results:

1. Should be able to strike silver glass under an encasement
2. Should be able to encase a simple round bead
3. Have the ability to super heat under an encasement
4. Heat control is optional, I prefer my murrini a bit distorted, this comes from allowing gravity to pull the face of the murrini off of the base. I like it. :)

This sale is for murrini, my beads are not included. But if you are interested I do have several listed. :)

Additional policies

Effective immediately RE: RESERVED BEADS

Reserved beads will be opened back up to all buyers 2 weeks after the request is made. I understand that sometimes you have to wait for a paycheck to come in, but I have had some beads on reserve sit so long that they expire (90 days)... meanwhile, they could have sold 3X over to other interested customers.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but 2 weeks is now going to be the maximum allowed for reservations to be paid before they are put back in the regular sales page.

Custom orders are considered on a case my case basis, but please understand that my beads are one of a kind and can't easily be reproduced.
