OTHER SALE POSTS: Large Focals and sets   Zipper pulls / Cell charms on Sale

XL Red Velvet Cupcake | Glass Bead Display

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.

Sweet Hearts | Chocolate Glass Bead Pair

Pair of inverse matching chocolate hearts glass beads. The press I use puts a slight wave pattern in the back and I have not added my usual “puddle” of glass to the bottom sides. The decorations on top are a swirl of either blackberry or mango with a little heart in the opposite color. Great set for earrings!

12.8mm (1/2 inch) hole to hole x 16.5mm wide $10.00
