Handcrafted artisan lampwork fancy tailed fish bead, handmade by me in my modest lampworking studio in Northwest Wisconsin. This cute little bead would be the perfect focal for a beautiful piece of jewelry. Or how about in a fun miniature aquarium or a hanging glass fish mobile! It's also perfect as a shelf sitter. I have a few in my kitchen.
I used soft glass in this fish. The body is an opaque purple, with multi-colored spots on the sides. The luscious and fun lips are an opaque brown. The fancy style fins are made with transparent purple tipped with a transparent amber. The eyes are a bright transparent blue, with black irises.
The bead hole is a large 3.5 mm size. Perfect for larger stringing materials, like thick gauged metal wire, ribbon or yarns. The width from pectoral fin to pectoral fin is about 0.74 or 3/4 of an inch (18.6mm).
1.11 " (28.2 MM) L 0.75" (18.6) D 1.01" (25.67 MM) H
All my lampwork beads are kiln annealed in a temperature controlled kiln to reduce stress and cracking. The hole is thoroughly cleaned with a diamond cleaning bit.
