I should not hoard beads. Me, of all people. But I confess... I have kind of been saving this little guy back. I don't know what it is about Ollie, but he makes me smile every time I see him. Maybe it is his unassuming sleepy owl face.
But now he is ready to fly the coop, so to speak. Ollie is looking for a good owl-loving home.
This bead has transparent silver glass dots on a base of dark ivory creates that 'old treasure map' look, and then each dot is a shimmery pool of metallic flashiness. The wings and brow are a nice pale champagne green and each wing has a silvered ivory stripe on the outer edge for feathery detail.
This lampwork bead was made by me using a propane-oxygen torch to shape the molten glass, followed by 8 hours in the kiln to anneal it. This bead is made "free-form" --- I do not use any molds or forms to create my beads.

I appreciate and thank you for your business. I work hard to create high-quality beads and I select the beads to sell very carefully. I take care to use the best lighting/color matching and offer at least two views of every item. I use a wood ruler and an "in hand" shot to offer a basis for color -- if the ruler or my hand are too red/green/blue than they should be, then monitor differences are the reason.
