A pendant for anyone who loves blue! The focal bead is built on a base of transparent blue with the center section having a design with dots and curved lines in "raku" glass. This is a special kind of glass that turns different colors depending on the amount of heat you focus on part of the design. There are so many colors in this part of the design and my camera just didn't do it justice . I make all the glass beads in my pendant designs. There are also two sweet spacers in a lighter shade of transparent blue to make the pendant more balanced....also to include more of my beads.
This pendant measures 2 3/4" / 7 cm long. It is 5/16" / 8 mm wide.
A "BeadHopper" was used to create the pendant The BeadHopper is a great new system for bead the artist to display and wear special lampwork creations. All pieces are silver plated and I recommend that you keep your pendant in a zip lock bag, however they are easily cleaned with a silver polishing cloth. Simply unscrew the bottom silver bead and all the components slide off. As Corina says, "Change your mind, change your bead!"
♥I work with soft glass of many different brands and types. Generally I use a 1/16 sized mandrel unless otherwise noted. As a professional lampworker, my beads are annealed in my digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability. I personally inspect each bead for flaws and I thoroughly clean the bead holes with my trusty Dremel tool.
♥All photographs are color balanced to represent the colors as accurately as possible; however different monitors do display colors differently, and the photographs are sometimes larger than life to show detail.
♥If for any reason you are not be satisfied with your purchase I am more than willing to exchange or refund according to customer desires.
