The 1st Sphere Hydrangea bead tutorial explores the motif of the hydrangea petal shape and how to design a bead embodying these hydrangea characteristics.
Examining hydrangeas closely, some have petals that are flat and wide. I took this one characteristic, expanded and repeated the trait to create this bead. You will be using the foundational information in Tutorial 101 as the jumping off point for this hydrangea bead.
In the 2nd hydrangea bead tutorial, Triangle Hydrangea Cluster, you’ll be using what you learned in Tutorial 102 to create the different types of blooms. We’ll work with designing a triangular bead just by positioning the flowers on the bead. You’ll also be mixing your glass colors, using enamels, and working with creating a cluster effect, unique to hydrangeas, on this bead. We will elevate small blooms above the surface to create this quality and by applying hydrangea buds underneath the small blooms.
The 3rd hydrangea bead tutorial is a flat back flower. This bead incorporates new techniques, advancing the complexity of the bead. We’ll start making the hydrangea petals much more sculptural.
You can make the 3rd bead as little or big as you feel comfortable doing by putting as many hydrangea petals on as you want. Then make the leaves in proportion to the flower. Some of these hydrangea petals will partially lift off the surface of the bead. We will be forming leaves above and below the hydrangea flowers. You learned how to make leaves in Tutorial 103. Now we’ll attach them to the bead.
The 4th hydrangea bead tutorial is also a flat back flower. It is a combination of all the previous tutorials, which includes the key characteristics of hydrangeas. You will learn how to pull all the lampworking techniques together to create the final, gorgeous hydrangea bead.
