A size-matched pair of lampwork glass beads in a beautiful combination of transparent green merging into aqua. The core of each bead is 'veiled' in reactive coloured glass which has been thickly encased with crystal clear glass for sparkle and vitality.
The beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels, and have been kiln-annealed for lasting strength. They measure 15mm in diameter and 11.5mm from hole to hole. Measurements are approximate.
Each bead is unique, having been made one by one at the torch flame in my hot-glass workshop in rural East Sussex. To find out more about the captivating craft of lampwork glass beadmaking, visit www.letfireinspire.co.uk
