Sometimes I don't torch for a while, even as long as a couple days. I've been working on a couple custom orders and I like them because at least I know what I'll be making.
There are times when I feel like I need something different. I'm obsessed by rainbows and have been trying to get a bead that combines all the colors, in order. The problem lies in the fact that yellow and green, next to each other on the spectrum, form a black line where they touch. The idea crossed my mind of doing wraps of color with a hair's breadth between them on a black or clear base and I still might do it, but then I had one of my custom orders. It was for a bead combining several transparent colors on a white core, encased in clear. I made the bead and went to bed. The next morning, lying half-awake, I remembered that transparent yellow and green don't react. I had my solution, and here's the result.
