I was asked to test a seahorse tutorial for Laurie of "glassbead" last week.
She has a really interesting technique to make the tail.... I am improving (the green glass I used in the 4th one is a really old colour called Mozaic green... in the rod it looks black...I think for for the tail to work properly the glass should be more transparent!)
But I think these little guys are really cute...Here's a direct link to the tutorial. if you want to try it yourself.
