I do my best to make sure that what I see on my screen matches what I see in natural lighting.
A little background about my jewelry… I handcraft each glass bead in my studio with a torch and immediately put it into a kiln to stabilize the glass. This process of annealing usually happens overnight. The colors that you see come from glass rods that are melted and wound around a mandrel in layers and encased in clear glass for added depth. Many of my beads have fine silver, 99.9% pure silver, either in the beads or on the outside of the beads. This silver is specifically made for lampworking and comes from Italy. I primarily use Effetre glass, also from Italy.
