There isn't a lot of "skill" in these beads, they are basically just large and small spacer beads. But the Glass I used in the larger beads is pretty awesome. I really tried to capture the "ripples" inside the glass, but I think you will need to see them to fully appreciate them. I used a veiled cane of aqua glass which gives the glass the look of a ripple in a calm pool of water. I made pale transparent aqua spacer beads to go with them. This is not common glass and can be hard to find. Take advantage of these while you can!
Total # of beads: 15 (7 focals and 8 spacers)
Bead Size: Medium and small
Bead Measurements: Focals are about 12-13mm in diameter, spacers are about 10-11mm in diameter
Glass used: Soft glass 90, 96 or 104 COE
Mandrel/Hole Size: 1/16" for minimal “wobble” when stringing.
Of course, all of my beads are annealed in a temperature controlled kiln overnight to settle the glass molecules and give them strength. But, keep in mind, they are GLASS and will still break if not handled properly.
Thank you for looking!!
