If you are in search of more information and maybe some inspiration, the “Web Gallery” section of the Frantz Art Glass Newsletter is a great place to look.
Along with the button for the “Color Palette” that I talked about last week, there is a button that says “Web Gallery” on the home page of the Frantz Newsletter at http://frantznewsletter.com . There is a wealth of images and information in this section of the newsletter.
When you click on the Web Gallery, a web page appears that shows links for the three different sections of the web gallery that are Focal Beads, Spacer Beads and Strands. Click on one of the choices and you will be taken to a page of thumb (small images) to pick from. When you click on a thumb image, a large image will appear with a list of the different glass colors that were used in that bead and the glass colors are linked to the Frantz Art Glass web page for easy purchase, plus pertinent information on how the bead was made.
If you have an exceptional bead image that you are proud of, I urge you to send it in with your personal information (i.e., website, social network,etc.), what glass the bead was made with, how the bead was made (be brief) and what kind of torch and fuel set-up you are using. All bead images should be 400 pixels x 400 pixels at 72 dpi resolution or larger. We will post these to our Web Gallery so you can share your beads and information with our customers.
