Love the look of this etched glass lampwork focal bead, it almost looks like ancient white marble with the veins of olive, browns and blues throughout the bead!
This lampwork focal bead is wound on a 1/16 mandrel. The size of the bead is approx. 25mm across, approx. 1 inch. I have included a photo of the bead with a ruler.
All of my lampwork beads are kiln annealed right out of the flame, it gives them extra strength and durability! I am very meticulous about making sure there are little or no “bubbles” in my lampwork glass beads. Some types of glass are just prone to bubbles but I do try and minimize those as I work. I clean the bead release out with a diamond drill bit dremel and bathe them in hot soapy water so they are squeaky clean when you get them!
If you have any questions regarding this bead or any of my other beads or jewelry, please "convo" me!
