Default Help identifying a lampworking technique

Hi... I'm trying to figure out what technique is used to make beads like this one, and where can I find a tutorial on how to do it? (preferably free, but paid ones are OK too if you really like them )



I have been trying to figure it out but I just don't know This is a hollow bead, or so it said on the website I nabbed the picture from... but I am looking to do donut-style beads with this technique. Not sure if that matters.

Those are just layers of dots. I counted about 15 layers. It's been many years since I've done them, but they can be fun to watch the pattern evolve.

This is a set I did (in another lifetime), without the clear layering between layers. You can see how this is a very versatile style.

Easy peasy. You start at one side of the bead and put down your white dots. Melt them in. Add transparent color over top, melt in. Next row of white dots slightly overlapping first row, then melt them in. Add your trans parent color, melt it in. And so on.

Ha! we all posted at the same time...

It's called 'Dragon Scale' or 'Fish Scale' and though I have never done it it looks to be dots on top of dots around the bead then an overlapping series of dot on dots and so on. I'm sure there are many aspects of doing this than I mentioned but that is the basics.

It's also called the "petal" bead. There is a tutorial on it in the "tutorials for sale" section.

I really don't think this is the same at the petal beads. Check out this mini tutorial. I found the link on this site when I did a search for fish scale.

This is a free tutorial by Aimee/Polychrome Beads that's very similar. Just omit the raking part.

In the free tutorial section, if you search "Implosion Petal Beads" you can get a nice free tut from J2Canoe. I haven't tried it but it looks good. There is also a paid tutorial available by Magma Beads. I have looked at at this but it was too pricey for my limited skills.

I seem to think this is in the 2d Cindy Jenkins book with photos. Just loaned it to someone, so I can't check! Jeri

Yep, Jeri, it is. It's on page 78. I had forgotten how many great tutorials are in that book !

I remember when I tried it that it helped to start with smaller dots than I anticipated. Glad you found it, jeri
