Gotta Make Ma Own Murrini

Fooling around with millifiori a few years back, I created this pendant for a fundraiser giveaway. It's done in the traditional Italian style but this was fused between two layers of clear glass. The look is one that I love. I've been thinking about how to stretch this look into a modern style, i.e., more my style. I'm not completely modern in my look but I'm spare in my application of technique and color. I like to put in a few things and let those speak for themselves.

Guess it's time to get back to makin' ma own murrini!

What part of your artwork do you make from scratch?

Lovely! I think a nice black background might make it more your style.....

Alas, I don't make any of my materials. I just play with ones I buy

I love this! I would love info on how you made this? I don't do lampwork, but I am fascinated by glass.
