Creating this bead I was inspired by amazing miracle of nature - the life cycle of butterflies. The formation of the Chrysalis and the moment when a beautiful butterfly appears from it fascinates me every time. Such an amazing way. Rebirth from caterpillar to butterfly. The lesson of the butterfly is letting go of old behavior and expounding into the next phase of existence. Each of us transforms through multiple stages in our life. It is only through exertion that we emerge into who we will be next.
So I decided to play with this form of life and made some Chrysalis beads for you.
Bead size is 51 mm tall (from hole to hole), wide into the widest place of bead is 20 mm and into the the narrowest place of bead diameter is 12 mm. Hole size is about 3 mm. Hole is clean and smooth.
This bead is made from glass in a hot flame and annealed in a kiln to remove stress and to impart strength and durability of the product.
Actual color of item may be different due to the monitor settings.
I create good quality lampwork glass beads and cabochons for craft supplies, jewelry supply and jewellery making. Hope You will be interested to use this cabochon for pendant, ring or brooch creating.
