Lapis blue and white hand sculpted flower button beads. No two exactly alike.
Great for cocktail rings, clasps, wired focals, links, whatever you can think of! Or maybe strung onto oblong hoop earrings with a couple Bali beads or caps on either side...I'd love to see what you come up with.
2 lampwork glass button beads
Approx 1" across
Formed on 1/16" mandrels
Hand flameworked by me, Gem, in my Tampa Bay, FL studio. I individually create each bead by melting and manipulating glass in the torch flame. The hot beads are then immediately transferred into my kiln soaking at 950-1050°F and then slowly cooled down overnight by a digital controller, thereby aligning its crystalline structure and relieving molecular stress, for strength and longevity.
