Another month and another COM reveal is ready.. it’s going to be Christmas at this rate!
This month we were treated to a choice of beautiful components from Sue Kennedy of SueBeads
We could pick a glass cabochon…
Or a pretty set of glass chicklet beads…
I went for a cabochon in a stunning brown caramel glass with a tint of purple. Of course I forgot to take a photograph as I do every month!
When I picked it, I imagined it set in copper with etching, something in purple to bring out the hints of colour in the glass and a rolled bail.
I tried a different technique for resist on this piece. I use stop out fluid quite often for painting designs on to copper, but with this piece I tried stamping the design on. It’s not quite as sharp as using vinyl resist, but I like the grainy effect it’s given this pattern.
