cat’s eye murrini

So dear readers, this is how a murrini (a millefiori that doesn’t look like a flower) is born… :-p Many thanks to my mom who patiently took the action photos…

Actually I don’t have a picture of the first step because I only realized halfway through that I wanted some pictures of the process -it involved making a blob of black glass and pressing it into the pupil’s form.
I layered it with a hint of pineapple sparkle (vetrofond) first and then lots of amber.

layering, keeping it hot, layering…oh -missed a bit! 😉


actually only afterwards I realized this eye reminded me of something…hence the lolspeak.


melting, rolling, melting…

and we’re pulling! weee!

Priceless.

Who’s our cute little Sauron eye? :-p


Thanks for watching. 😉
