"Le Fiore Vive" Series (watercolor)
The Complete Book of Glass Beadmaking

The Le Fiore Vive Series was born on Sunday 12/29/02 and averages 1.25 to 1.75 inches lengthwise - a miniature canvas - as I like to work on the small scale.  Le Fiore Vive is Italian for "The Living Flower".  And in glass, the beauty of these flowers will indeed live forever.  Many of my creations are inspired by mother  nature's colorful  palette.    Using glass as my paintbrush, I hope you will drop by often to see the numerous flowers I will add to this series.  This series features focal beads that are fully decorated on the entire circumference of the bead surface.   My latest work in this series incorporates more intricate designs and watercolor versions using enamels (finely powder glass), as pictured above.  Previous pieces to this  series can be found in the Lampwork Gallery.  (Photo by Azad)

It was an honor to have been chosen to be part of Kimberley  Adam's techniques book, The Complete Book of Glass Beadmaking.    You can find the Le Fiore Vive beads on page 168.  Click the book links above to get a larger view.
