This unique bead is in response to a request to reproduce an historical bead found in Europe and made sometime in the 5th century.
The bead was wound on a 5mm mandrel, and measures 21mm in diameter and 18mm from hole to hole. I have tried as far as possible to match the colours and patterns, although naturally these will be a little brighter than something so ancient.
The bead has been tumble etched to leave a soft matte finish.
