Item details

This unique bead started life as a large lentil. I used a lovely, streaky, coral-based color as the base, and added a bit of fine white frit as an accent color. And then I slipped into the twilight zone (hehe)! I snipped one side and inserted a small marble into the opening. I made it earlier using a lovely translucent-with-white-streaks glass. As a final accent, I added clear raised dots to the opposite side. Temporarily strung on a knotted satin cord for immediate enjoyment!

This bead was made on a 3/32" mandrel, and is 31mm (tall) X 36mm (wide) X 14mm (thick).

The chocolate kiss is shown for size comparison only - this bead is sweet enough!
