Looove that Triton
Love that Triton (Double Helix). For the most drama, reduce it in a Dragon's Breath flame (no oxygen, crank up the gas.) Keep moving the bead in the flame and changing the angle - the strongest and most dramatic reduction seems to happen at 90 degrees to the flame - so the sides of a spacer are nicer than the front area that you see - so tip the bead back and forth in the flame so that all parts hit the flame at a 90 degree angle at some point.
This is a Triton dragon on a ivory bead. The Triton has gone completely metallic. Soooo nice.
