You may recall I made a "Lace" bead a few weeks ago, and I wasn't sure if I should etch it or not - in the end the customer decided. But while I was pondering, it was suggested to me to etch just one side. I held this thought in my mind, and when I made this bead I decided to give it a go!
Now I appreciate that it's hard to tell from this picture, but it really is quite surreal. I've got the best of both worlds here. One one side it's frosted and shows up the lace really well, and on the flip side it's still got the shiney look - it's quite amazing!! Why didn't I think of this before???
You know, this bead is a keeper but I will be having another go!
