This is a digital 7 page mini-tutorial in .pdf format showing you how to make a Floating Ribbons Bead (2.7mb).

After payment is complete you will receive an Etsy download notification email and will be able to download the file immediately. You will also be able to access your download files from your Etsy homepage, under Account - Purchases.

NB: this is a new Etsy feature that is being tested at the moment, so please contact me if it doesn't work for you, and I will send the tutorial as an email attachment!

The beads in the listing images are not included!

Skill level:
Intermediate. You need to know how to make encased stringers of various thickness, and have enough heat control to handle a plum-sized gather of molten glass. Also, you must be able to encase beads. I assume you know the lampwork “lingo”, and that you are familiar with a lampwork studio setup and safety procedures.

Tools needed:
Parallel mashers, mandrels, graphite marver, tweezers, round bead roller/press (optional). It is also handy to have a knife or “raking” tool, whether it be an old dentist pick or a dedicated lampwork tool.

A selection of opaque and transparent glass in colours that you like. In the tutorial demo I used Effetre opaque turquoise, transparent aqua, opaque white, opaque lime green, transparent lime green, clear.

This is a digital product and, as such, cannot be returned or refunded.
