Sunny | Dichroic Glass Lentil Bead

I actually made this for me… thinking it would be a nice focal for a kumihimo necklace.  After months of looking at it in my bead bowl, it’s time to let it go…  37 mm hole to hole  x 40 mm (1.5″) This is a nice LARGE bead. Lots of silver rich glasses, reduced and heavily encased to capture that shine and mother-of-pearl look on both sides. A swath of crinkle dichroic is down the center and a colorful sunflower wrapped around one side, blue aventurine was used for the spiral. Spirals are a symbol of the circle of life or of ‘home” and are often featured in my work. $38.00

Rio Ribbed Rounds| Glass Bead Set


This set of Rio Party color beads is now MADE TO ORDER. A color reaction between a rare, no-longer-made glass and two more common highly reactive glasses. There is no predicting how the colors will develop but a riot is pretty much guaranteed! You will find baby blue, purple, lavender, burnt orange, golden yellow and teal in these. I still have a few vials of the precious glass left but when it’s gone… The party will be over!

The five bead set is a smidge under 3″ long. The smaller pair are about 3/8″ and the larger three are around a 1/2″. $27.50 As always you will receive a photo of your actual beads before mailing!
