Focal Bead

Focal beads are beads that are designed to be the focus or highlight of a piece of jewellery or collection.  This focal bead is a new style I've been working on.  It is dots upon dots upon dots, some with twists, some dragged into wonderful patterns, some just dots.  Each bead is unique in colour, size and shape.

This bead is has several base layers finishing with white dots, covered with clear dots, covered with black dots.  I calculate 234 dots!   It is ~28mm wide x 20mm thk.  It was made using a 3/16" diameter mandrel.
