Cathedral Reflexions – As if the sun is shining through the church windows in Notre Dame in Paris… as colorful and flamboyant is this frit blend.

Frit blend *Mix* 104coe & 35% 96coe

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 “Cathedral Rexflexions”:

Stud earrings:

Brief instruction:
Cut two pieces of glass (here Effetre white) 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.

Brief instruction:
Start by melting a really tiny blob of white glass onto the tip of the ear stud. (remember the size for the second stud) Roll the small blob in frit and melt them in. Cover the tiny blob with clear glass (here Effetre 006). (again – remember the size of the blob) and melt it in. 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.

Brief instruction:
Cut two pieces of glass (here Effetre 006 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.
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.
