*** PLEASE READ - This is a MADE TO ORDER listing. Current lead time for bead orders is 5-7 Business Days after payment (excludes weekends and holidays). Once the bead set is finished, I will send photos via Etsy Messenger so you can visually approve the set before mailing. Additional orders are welcome during the creation process :)
This set includes beautiful handmade Italian glass beads with bright oranges, teals, fuchsia and sunset magentas. There is plenty of fine stringer work with .999 silvered ivory, and some beads are frosted for a nice beach glow. The photos above show a set of 80 beads, however these can be made in quantities of 40,80,100 and 120.
SUNSET DRIVE Beads:avg size is 9mm x 13mm. Made on 3/32" mandrel - hole is 2.5mm.
Beads are all handmade by myself here in Dallas TX. Beads are annealed directly from flame to kiln, carefully cleaned and inspected before sale. Colors may vary due to computer monitor variations. These photos have not been digitally altered in any way (except adding the label and signature.)
I had been visiting this shop for quite a while, marveling at the gorgeous colors, and when I needed bright lavender beads for a specific necklace, I returned to order them; I was so sad when Bree told me the purple glass was getting hard to obtain—and several lampworker friends confirmed that certain purples are extinct. But Bree somehow managed to get hold of some and made me a wonderful set with the purple included. Quite the miracle worker!

Very nicely done. Seller went out of her way to make sure these were done to my satisfaction. They are beautiful and will work nicely into my weavings. Excellent service and shipping.
