Bold red blooms and soft purple buds with sparkling mirror-like bubble pearl centers, floating suspended above a mustard core, encased in clear for depth, dimension, gloss, and sparkle. Long barrel shape.
1 lampwork glass bead
Approx 26.5mm (just over 1") long
Formed on 1/16" mandrel
Hand torched 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.
