Default How to make a flower implosion pendant

Hey everyone. I wanted to share a tutorial I wrote about in my blog today. I'll give you a snippet and then a link so you can read the rest. This was made using boro, but you could probably do it the same with soft as well.

Process of making a flower pendant: Tutorial

When I started making glass I was confused as to how different flowers were made. Through research I found out that flowers are simply dots and lines. Those lines can be curved or squiggled. I also learned recently about adding an indention on the ends or using a knife or razor to add a crease in the curve which will cause a shadow in the leaf/flower petal and with some colors make it look like a different color in the crease.

This subject of flower making however tends to be very hush hush in the glass world. This makes me sad because there are many times I see a flower that I would love to try, but have no friggin idea how its done. Thankfully I'm persistent and was able to locate some forum posts that talked about some flower and they used diagrams. This makes it a lot easier to learn and then try new things as you start to understand how things work.

Read the rest here

Interest can also be added by using twisted cane composed of green and white.

That looks great! If you want more ideas in line/dot placement as well as color combinations check out the tutorial that Ron Bearer Jr. put out. It takes the hush hush out of implosions and it is by far the best tutorial on the subject.

Cheers,
Ted
