Focal Bead

This beautiful focal bead was made with a deep transparent blue over a white core.  It has been decorated with silvered ivory and jellyfish like murrini.

It measures approximately 28mm from hole to hole, ~30mm wide and 14mm thk and was created on a 3/32" diameter mandrel.

Beads this size make fabulous necklaces. 

All of my glass beads have been carefully annealed in my digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and durability.
