The listing is for this bead, approx. 19 mm hole to hole, 22 mm at its widest. The stringing hole is approx. 3 mm.
I formed the bead out of stoneware clay and bisque fired it. Then I glazed it with this Rose Pink glaze and fired it again. Next I took a couple of 'wing dings' (the bikes and hearts) as well as original decal drawings (see top and bottom of the bead) applied them and re-fired (three firings all together). The decals are sunk into the glaze, it cannot be rubbed or scratched off.
*There are 2 bikes and 2 hearts on this bead.
I have discovered that each batch of beads fires in the kiln differently depending on the season, temperature, and humidity, and barometric pressure.
