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.
