I slid these miniature lavender glass beads onto the soft green stems of the lavender harvested from my herb garden for these photos. This listing is for a set of 20 beads, 10 medium size and 10 small made with assorted shades of blue and purple glass, 2mm holes. The set will arrive in a protective gift box filled with fragrant organic lavender buds grown at Pelindaba Lavender, the local estate lavender grower and distiller of essential oils here on San Juan Island in Washington State. No lavender stalks are included in the listing, just the handmade glass beads!
This handcrafted lavender glass bead is inspired by the specific varieties of lavender - Royal Purple, Hidcote, Munstead - growing at the organic lavender farm where I work. This bead depicts this fragrant herb's flower head.
This is a new bead size, part of my "Miniatures" line - the hole is much smaller and the bead is more dainty, similar to the size of the flower head of a young lavender plant.
This medium-sized glass lavender beads measure approx. 28 mm long with a 2mm hole. This bead is quite thin, the hole is much smaller than my other beads. It was formed using imported italian soft glass rods. Each bead is handcrafted using an oxy propane torch.
You are purchasing a unique, copyrighted work of art- no two glass beads are exactly alike!
Each bead comes packaged in a protective gift box bearing my silver lavender logo filled with fragrant organic lavender buds that you can use to make a lavender sachet! My packaging is finished with a hand tied satin ribbon and 3 organic dried lavender flowers.
Please convo me with special requests. Note that I may produce your bead upon order and you may not recieve the exact bead pictured here.
I also make these beads as hollow vials to hold the plant's calming essential oil, a true aromatherapy experience for it's wearer! (you can check these out in the Essential Oil Vials section of my JEWELRY shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/lavenderjewelry)
