My friend Michael Harrington, the artist behind Beads That Bounce, brought some of his latest experiments to our Bead Society meeting tonight and caused quite a stir. Michael has taken his cold inclusion bead technique and made what he calls Popcorn Cabochons. These are made of epoxy so they are light as well as beautiful.
The cabs range in size from 1 1/4 inches (3.2 centimeters) to 2.67 inches (7 centimeters). Michael will be at Bead and Button with all of his beads but in the meantime, here are some quick photos that I took at our meeting.
This blue bead above is one of my favorite ones because it looks like a modern art painting.
This one above almost looks like a something under the sea. A few of us got cabochon samples to play with and I am anxious to play with my yellow, diamond-shaped cabochon.
