                       "Royal Blues" #01
This is a Spiders Sunset variation done in a rich blue sparkle. It has a turbo cobalt and hazy white lens that is framed in a dot stack and pinwheel design. The opposing side has a white trillion cut Gilson opal centered in another dot and pinwheel pattern. As of now this is a 1 of 1 but do plan to do a few more in this color scheme. Keep in mind this was shot under direct lighting. The lens is a bit darker when not under direct light. And the opal is much more light reactive than the pics show. It will come in a signed and dated blue Pelican 1120 case. It measures 2.06" in diameter. -  $1200 - SOLD
                         "White SS"  - #02
This is the second "White SS" to date. It is made with a white that is getting more and more rare as it is out of production and what's left out there is it. It has a cobalt and white lens made with no fume, just color. The lens is framed in a dot and pinwheel design. A matching band of dots and pinwheels wraps the equator with a dot stack design centered at the back pole. This one will come in a signed and dated black Pelican 1120 case. It measures 1.93" in diameter. - $1000 - SOLD
                           "White SS" - #03
This is the third "White SS" to date. It is made with a white that is getting more and more rare as it is out of production and what's left out there is it. It has a cobalt and white lens made with no fume, just color. The lens is framed in a dot and pinwheel design.

It measures 1.93" in diameter. - $1000 - SOLD
                         "Spiders Sunset"
This is a traditional "Spiders Sunset" done with a fumed SS lens and a marquise cut Gilson opal floating above the lens. The lens is fumed with 24k gold and fine silver fume. That is framed in a dot and pinwheel design. The back has a scaled lotus like dot stack design. The core of the marble is solid cobalt blue with a twisted fume fade over the blue. This one will come in a signed and dated black Pelican 1120 case. It measures 1.87" in diameter. - $600 - SOLD
                            "Early Bloomer"
This is an explosion marble made with blue and white cane and 24k gold and silver fume. The pink is simply gold layered over white. The blossom really fills the whole marble. It will come in a wooden chest for safe storage or display. It measures 1.25" in diameter. - $175 - SOLD
                       "Monochrome Contrast"
This is an explosion marble made with black and white cane and 24k gold and silver fume. The pink is simply gold layered over white. The blossom really fills the whole marble. It will come in a wooden chest for safe storage or display. It measures 1.25" in diameter. - $175 - SOLD
                    "Poppy Sunset" - #01
This is the first in this color scheme called "Poppy". Poppy is a bright red/orange cadmium color that is quite heat sensitive and takes much longer to work than typical colors not in the cadmium family. The lens is done in a white and poppy scheme. That is framed in a dot and pinwheel design. The core of the marble is cobalt blue with a double layer of poppy and a double layer of clear to protect the poppy. The clear layer caused a really neat shadow effect from the pinwheels that I really like. :) It will come in a matching orange Pelican 1120 case. It measures 2.05" in diameter. - $1400 - SOLD
            "Neurotic Tendencies" - Experimental
This is an experimental twist on my dot stack marbles. I am working on stitching multiple dot stack patterns together in one piece. This one is done in a teal, black and white color scheme. It has a round cut white Gilson opal centered at the front pole with a nice dark cobalt sparkle backing it. The opal is much prettier and light reactive than photos show. This one will come in a wooden chest for safe storage and display. It measures 1.73" in diameter. - $900 - SOLD
