This organic glass bead pair has been made from opaque ivory and dark silver plum, a glass which develops an unusual, slightly metallic purplish grey finish The glass has been decorated with raku frit and silvered ivory stringer. I have cut into the lower section to give the same sort of effect that is found on melon beads and glass has been treated in the flame to give a slightly aged appearance.
These cones are approximately 30mm long and 12mm diameter at the widest point. They weigh approximately 4g per bead. Made on 2mm mandrels.
All my beads are kiln annealed.
Your beads will be made to order and will not be those shown in the photographs. Due to the handmade nature there may be slight variations in design.
