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
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!
This bead is so large it could be a display bead or – if you are like me and love big beads – worn as a pendant. I deliberately aimed for a more oval shape on the icing so it would hang a bit closer to the chest if worn but this is a darling bead on the display… a real conversation starter! Bead is 1″ high and 1 1/4″ wide. $27
Note, the red base is a dark red… and more red to the human eye than my camera picks up.
