I LOVE LOVE LOVE this glass… it’s Mood glass…changing color depending on the light! As luck would have it, Swarovski makes crystals with the SAME properties!
This set is shows in fluorescent lighting (pale green – not quite the lime you see here), Natural outdoor light (grey), and Incandescent light (peach!) It’s like three bead sets in one! Strand includes 3 barrels, 2 transparent matching glass donuts and four 6mm Swarovski bicones. $20
Offering these as made to order for a bit… Please allow one week for processing.
This is an amazing set and no, the photos don’t begin to capture the shine and luster in this glass! Made of rare / extinct z99 frit over a reactive base. Simple, elegant and oh-so impressive… these beads would make an excellent statement piece!
one heart – 16 x 30 mm
a strand of 11 barrels in various sizes. One barrel is cased to accent the purple. Strand is almost 10″ long. Largest bead is 29 x 13mm. Smallest is 15 x 8 mm.
1 – 2″ strand of five rounds. Largest is 12 x 14 mm and the smallest is 9 x 10 mm
1 – 3″ strand of six Charms measuring 12 x 11 mm.
3 XL big hole beads. Inside diameter is 14mm or half an inch… these could be worn as rings are would work well with the rest of this set. Two are round and one is square. Questions??? Please ask!
26 beads – $155.00
Finally! Another curved bead! I love making these in transparent glass so you can see the texture inside the glass. Teal base with lots of silvered ivory “sand” and waves on the front and little murrini sea shells. I made matching donuts with the same texture inside the glass and boy do they sparkle… it’s almost like using dichroic, the way they catch the light. This set is sure conversation starter! Focal is 54 mm long (just over 2″) x 11 mm and the hole is a generous 4.7 mm. Donuts 6 mm hole to hole x 12 mm and a 2.7 mm hole. 3 beads. $35.00
I’ve long had a fascination with disk beads but felt I lacked the delicate touch to make such narrow beads. After getting some advice from a friend, I sat down to make a set in one of my favorite colors. Not completely orange – there is a pink tint to these sweet little set. The strand is just over 2″ long. Made of graduated sizes, the largest beads are 6 mm hole to hole x 13 mm and the smallest are 5 x 11 mm. 10 beads $28.00
Six large donuts (10 x 18 mm) in a rich red base. A reactive high silver glass was used to coax a lovely fine line of silver ivory on the edges of the black. $28. The original set is sold but remakes will be offered for a limited time.
I love this set…more from the “What? Was I drinking?” series… Lots of blues and teals and creamy yellow greens. Five round beads: 2 smooth: 2 x 11, 3 ribbed: 2 x 15 mm & 1 x 14 mm $24.99
I actually used these beads to make a rather unusual pendant for an Art Bead Scene competition. It was so unusual, I was certain it would never sell. Yet, I was still fascinated by these beads… the creamy alabastro glasses and the lovely teal blue kicked off by the addition of copper. They’ve been sitting on my desk for ages… I hope you like them as much as I do.
Five bead set – Short Bicone is 18 mm hole to hole x 14 mm. Tiny Spacers are 4mm. $9.99
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 beads are the result of a color reaction. The colors look brown or gray depending on the light with a pop of peach. They will fit a Pandora and I also have a matching set of micro glass beads. Two beads measure $15.00
