These lovely bicone beads are made from Italian plum coloured glass and then have been shaped and rolled in frit. Lastly after cooling and cleaning they have been dipped in an etching solution to give them a beautiful matt velvet finish.
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 wide and 16mm high 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.
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.
