This lampwork focal bead is in varigated shades of blues, aquas and teals to give it a "watery" effect It is "handshaped" while molten hot, no press was used to make the shape. After cleaning out the bead I coated the hole with some acrylic sealer so that it makes the bead much more transparent and shiny!
This lampwork focal bead is wound on a 3/32 mandrel. The size of the bead is approx. 36mm long and 14mm at it's widest point or approx.
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!
Thanks for looking!
