More lampwork

I am cheating a bit by posting some of these beads; I made the teal/ivory/black set and some of the pink beads a couple of weeks ago, but just cleaned them and got them ready to make into jewelry.

The heart is red glass, shaped and embellished with fine silver wire. As the wire is heated, it beads up on the surface, creating a broken line. The small black beads with the little heart on them are my first successful attempts to embed my murrini onto beads. I am still not quite sure what I will do with them, but maybe as part of a larger set?

The last set is just a couple of beads with layers of glass trapping a bubble on each side.
