Here's an adorable little blue turtle just waiting to make a new friend. He's just about an inch wide and slightly longer than that, with a 2.5mm hole from head to tail. He'll make a great necklace or bracelet since he'll lay flat on your skin.
Any bead can be purchased with a leather cord in either black or brown for an additional $5.
*Lampwork Beads are handmade glass beads. These special beads are crafted using a centuries-old process called lampworking. Rods of colorful glass are melted in a special torch and the molten glass is then wound around a steel rod, forming a basic bead. They are then annealed in a kiln to ensure strength. All the beads I sell are annealed by me, in a digitally-controlled kiln (which is a process that ensures the strength of the beads). *Please remember: although every effort is made to create a strong, stable bead, glass is still glass and should be handled with care.
