For these tulip lampwork beads I used clear glass under opaque buttercup orange glass for the petals. I think this color is so much prettier in person, not a flat orange but with yellow highlights. Sweet!
These beads each measure about 14mm tall with 2mm holes.

Returns & exchanges
I have to say that in my many years of selling online, I have had few issues in this area. Love the postal service. Please contact me first if you are concerned about your purchase and we can find the best solution.
Returns accepted for any reason. Items must be received by me in original condition. Return must be initiated within 14 days of customer's receipt of product. Refund for returned items (except damaged) will include only the original price of the beads, not the original shipping charge or the cost to return the beads.
Items damaged in shipping will be resolved through an insurance claim which may include a refund of purchase price and shipping.
Please contact me before returning beads.
Bead Hole Size: I use primarily 1/16" mandrels (measuring approximately 1.6mm) and 3/32" mandrels (measuring approximately 2.3mm). I usually shorthand this as 1mm and 2mm, but the holes are generally a fraction of an inch larger than that once the beads are finished.
Please remember that all monitors show color differently. I try to describe colors but can't guarantee they will look the same in person as they do on your computer. Also, these are glass items and can be fragile. Sculpted glass in particular can have delicate parts that should be taken into consideration in your jewelry designs. In my many years of bead making I find glass beads to be tougher than you'd think but they are breakable if you try hard enough. If you are interested in a custom order please send me an email.
