These delightful round beads are made from a base of clear glass, then rolled in different coloured blues and wrapped with fine silver wire (99.99% pure silver) which has been melted in to leave lovely trails. After being removed from the kiln they have been etched to give them a smoke matt appearance.
All my lampwork beads have been carefully made in my home studio with American and Italian glass and are properly annealed in my Paragon kiln for strength and durability and then finally cleaned with a Dremel. This listing is for 6 beads, please contact me if you require more or would like any custom orders.
The lampwork beads measure approximately 14mm in diameter with a hole size of 2.1mm and come packaged to you strung on the strand as featured.
Care instructions: Whilst each piece goes through an annealing process to strengthen the glass, do take care not to drop them. They can be easily cleaned with warm water and the silver can be polished with a polishing cloth.
NB. Glass is notoriously difficult to photograph, most pieces appear more vibrant and full of life to what the camera can capture, whilst every effort is made to take a true photograph there may be minor differences.
