Students will learn how to use soft glass reactive glasses such as Double Helix to create beads. Reactive glasses contain dissolved silver and other metallic oxides when worked hot, the silver stays in solution, but when cooled slightly and reheated, silver crystals begin to grow. As the silver crystals become larger, the glass color begins to change like MAGIC!
