This bead has an etched finish and is perfect with any finding you choose but it looks exceptional with antique bronze findings for an ancient old world look.
TIP: These etched beads love to be touched and oiled! If you have aromatic oils that you love, just rub it on, it makes them extra soft and velvety. Easy to wash, just use soap and a toothbrush to clean them.
This lampwork focal bead is wound on a 3/32 mandrel. The size of the bead is approx. 25mm across, approx. 1 inch.

All of my lampwork beads are kiln annealed right out of the flame, it gives them extra strength and durability! I clean the bead release out with a diamond drill bit dremel and bathe them in hot soapy water so they are squeaky clean when you get them!
