These beads are made with an amazing reactive glass. This glass changes colors depending on the conditions of the flame used while they are being made. The beads size is approx. 19mm x 10mm. These beads are made on a 3'32" (2.3mm) mandrel.
This is a fairly new new skill for me. I started making flame-worked beads in February 2013, so I in no way claim that my beads are perfect, but they ARE well made.
I'm a full time Self Representing Artist Jewelry Designer/ SRAJD #3662 These beads are individually handmade in my studio. Each bead has been thoroughly cleaned with a diamond bit reamer and properly annealed in a temperature controlled kiln for strength and durability.
When I post photos I strive to use accurate photographs of my beads. True colors of the beads are my goal; however, that is at times difficult to do. It should also be noted that every monitor is different, and colors may not be exact.
