Up for sale is a beautiful ocean themed focal bead in the shape of scallop seashell. I created this bead to have the look and feel of the sea over a sandy beach. The top two thirds of this bead is made with pale blue transparent glass over a sandy shore made from silvered ivory "sand". I added a wave to the water on one side. I decorated the sandy parts of this bead with a sea urchin, a sand dollar and a twisted seashell. Both sides are decorated.
**Note: You have the option of having this bead etched for free. Etching is the process of removing the shine from the beads... just like beach glass!
Hole orientation: Vertical (from water to sand)
All the beads I sell are made by *ME* in my studio in NW PA. I do not resell beads torched by other glass artists. My beads are immediately placed in the kiln for lasting strength and durability (I do not batch anneal). I clean all my bead holes. All holes are smooth. My beads are also balanced. I've been making beads a long time and my work is something I stand by 100%. If after you receive your beads, something is not what you expected or something is wrong, please don't hesitate to contact me. I will work with you... I want you to be happy with your purchase!
