Blue Curacao – bright shades of Blue, like watching the Caribbean sea. With opaque light blue highlights – like the sparkling sun on the surface of the water.

Dark reactions with ivory – interesting for the use as seafloor.

Fritblend *Mix* coe104 & 25% coe96

Tip: Use 10%-percent-rule and make test beads, to make sure your combination works as wished for.
10%-percent-rule means: use a maximum of 10% 96coe glass together with 90% 104coe glass.  The rule refers to the whole bead. If your base bead is 104coe, with frit this will be no problem, but keep the rule in mind.

Some ideas using “Blue Curacao”:

Stud earrings:


Brief instruction:
Cut two pieces of glass (here Effetre T006 clear) with the same size from the rod. I use a 5 mm diameter rod and cut off 5-6 mm pieces. Hold the glass piece with tweezers or pliers and warm it in the flame.
Also, warm the tip of the ear stud (which you hold with an ear stud-holding-tool) and dock it onto the warm glass. Then melt the glass until it is a small round blob. The stud should go 1-2 mm into the glass.
Now roll the hot glass blob into the frit blend and melt them in. Then shape it – eg with a lentil former or a really small marble mold, anneal it and put it into the annealing kiln or into annealing beads/bubbles.

Now roll the hot glass blob into the frit blend and melt them in.
Grab the hot glass at the tip with your tweezers and twist it. Melt it again until it is round and next shape it eg with a lentil former or a really small marble mold, anneal it and put it into the annealing kiln or into annealing beads/bubbles.
