Drama Mama | Glass Bead Focal

I am endlessly fascinated with this glass that is so moody and presents endless colors in the flame. Lovingly cased with crystal clear. 65 mm hole to hole – Please see photo of indoor lighting as this bead is much darker with indoor lighting! I have done my best to represent the colors correctly presenting the darker indoor version as well as the dramatic outdoor version!

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







Twisting | Lampwork Mini Focal Bead

A mini focal from a series I’ve been fondly calling “What? Was I drinking??” because of my inability to make any two beads look remotely related… OY! The challenges of beadmaking, eh???

This focal is 23 mm tall x 8.5 mm wide. $9







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!


Vitro Bicone | Glass Focal Bead

An End of Day bead in a bicone shape, swirls of vitrograph handpulled cane over ivory. There are a myriad of colors in this bead from a yellow / olive to copper green and teal blues… a lovely mix. Measures 1.5″ long x .5″ at the center of the bicone. See size reference photo below $12.00







 

Fall Floral | Glass Bead Focal

This bead was originally to be an entry into the Fire Divas Team “Say it with words” bead challenge. After she came out the kiln, I didn’t like the words, so I slowly heated it up, scraped off / melted in the words, added frit and flowers and Voila! A two day bead is born! This one is in fall colors. Be sure to see the other bead I did this to…

1 3/8″ x 1 1/8″ – $14.00
