Twisted brass wire forms the stem or pin part of this shawl pin. I made the hollow shell-like bead at my torch, using American soft glass and pixie dust. It measures about 5 1/2", the bead itself is 1 1/8" x 1". The brass holder is about 2" in diameter.
The lampworked bead has been annealed for strength and durability, but it is glass, and care should be taken in handling it.
