Mandala Focal #2

I love dots!  This is the second in my Mandala series.  This style is typically handpainted on stones or tiles to create fabulous geometric designs.

I'm thrilled with the pattern I achieved this time.  I used very thin stringers of glass and a very tiny flame. 

The bead is 1 1/4" diameter x ~ 1/2" thick.  The base colour is black and the dots are a combination of opaque red, yellow and white.

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