   Marcy Lamberson and Brad Shute teamed up for a couple of wonderful adventures in glass. 

First, Marcy showed us her process for creating shaped symbol beads.  

 

Before anything else, Marcy sketches her ideas.

 

She begins the bead with a long black bicone.

Next she creates shapes with a sharp edged tool.

She continues shaping segments.

Next, she begins adding colored symbols.

Here Marcy completes the base layer for a heart.

Marcy adds a second layer to her heart symbol.

She next creates a spiral in the center section.

Then she adds and refines a triangle shape.

She adds a few decorative dots.

And... Voilla!!  A beautiful symbol bead!

A couple of Marcy's multi-component beads.

 

If you've made some beads you love using Marcy's techniques, send in your photos and notes.

Your Web Mama will post them here for you!!
