This bead is very reminiscent of Venetian glass, although not as thin walled. Depending on the light, the swirls appear almost golden. It was made at my torch using American soft glass.
It measures 1 1/8" x 7/8" and was made on a 1/4" mandrel, allowing it to be strung on heavy chains or cords, or multiple strands of beads.
It would be a stunning focal point of a necklace, but could stand alone as a pendant or simply strung on a heavy chain.
As with all my beads, this one has been kiln annealed for strength and durability, but remember that it IS glass, and treat it with care.
I have tried my best to present colors as accurately as possible but monitors will vary.
