Here are the results from my tests with melting glass beads into clay. Definitely something I am going to keep going with. I think they would look better if I melted the beads into white clay as the terracotta obscures the colour of the glass. I used small seed beads in blue, rainbow and purple. I will post again with more photos when I do the next batch in white. These beads were fired to around 1100, anything lower and the glass doesn’t melt.
