This shell bead is truly unique, with its pearlized finish and Scarlet edge trim. It was created using American soft glass. It is hollow, as natural shells are. It would make a beautiful pendant, used on its own; but would be equally effective as the focus of a necklace, perhaps using strands of pearls.
It measures 1 1/4" through the height of the shell, and 7/8" wide, but the winglike projection on the side extends the size to 1 3/4" x 1 1/4".
As with all my beads, this one has been kiln annealed for strength and durability, but remember that it IS glass, and hollow as well, and treat it with care.
I have tried my best to present colors as accurately as possible but monitors will vary.
