“African Gray was rolled in 99% fine silver foil and sprinkled with Coffee Bean frit from Robin Koza. The frit has webbed among the microdrops of silver to create a rich set of 8 round beads.” See more at Darlene's blog.

"On a base of CiM's African Grey opaque glass, fine silver foil was melted in. Shards of Double Helix Terranova 2.1 silver infused glass were added and struck to bring out the amazing hues of magenta, blue and green." See more at Darlene's blog.

"The nugget has silver foil on the surface and was reduced. The foil has fumed the surface darker, developed some interesting colours, and the grey’s sheen makes the foil seem to almost float on the surface of the bead." Read more at Heather's blog.

“It seems to end up being truer grey than the rod. The rod has an attractive shimmer to it that, strangely enough, is retained in the finished bead - although it is subtle - it has almost a cat's eye effect.” Read more at DragonJools blog.
