My new Terra glass from Double Helix has finally arrived! For the past few days I have been completely obsessed with it. I'm quickly turning into a Terra-ist.

However, so far my luck with pulling bright colors out of it has been Terra-ble. It's a very finicky glass that can't be re-heated too many times. I think what I need is practice!

I will post a couple of pictures here of my better Terra beads. The spacers are unencased, and the barrel is encased.

I've learned a lot about how to work with Terra by reading a thread on the Lampwork, etc. message board. Here's a link to the thread:

Good luck to all you lampworkers who are doing great stuff with this glass!
