Blue Shard Bicone
playing with transparency

Though most of the beads to which I applied shards were either round or pressed lentils, I did apply the technique to some other shapes, such as this slightly listing bicone:

bicone with blue shards. Probably made in 2008. I started the post, then, anyway...

Interestingly enough, this is still a technique I use, though typically layered with others, such as frits and powders and trailing.
