A flattened Oval-ish Focal Bead with my brand new tattoo rose design in orange on each side, with leaves, outlined in black, this is a new edgier version of my rose design.
The rose design itself appears to be floating above a spiral core, in a turquoise / celadon green colour. It is made with many layers of carefully placed glass, each one is slightly different.
made on a 2mm mandrel. measures approx 40mm x 33mm x 9mm
I am a perfectionist. I can't help it, and there are a few teensy little surface imperfections in this bead, little dimples and/or bubbles that I don't think should be there, but I must remind myself, that I am not a machine. This is afterall a handmade item. I am constantly told by friends and family that I am too picky, and that I should sell them, so I'm doing that, but at slightly less than if it was 100% perfect.
I make my beads one by one in my Devon studio, they are annealed in my digitally controlled kiln and cleaned.
