Focal Bead Jewelry

These beads are made by melting, shaping and combining glasses in the heat of a torch, then cooling them slowly in a kiln. THe shapes and colors I can make are limited only by your imagination.
The beads pictured are focal beads 30mm around, or tall or long (depending on the picture you're looking at).

The pink bead is made by layering five different glasses, one being rich in silver content. It also has dots and a swirled wrap of goldstone.
The blue striped one has five different colors of glass and real goldstone stripes flanking the center stripe. The center stripe ranges from deep blue to pale blue because of the pure silver content of the glass.
The cone shaped bead starts with a base of black and has wraps of black-striped silver glass that range in color from green to blue to purple.

All three beads can be made into pendants by adding sterling silver findings and a bail, like the cone bead. They come with a sterling necklace ($54.00-$65.00).

I can also make these style of beads in smaller pairs as earrings,($65.00) or in multiples for a bracelet. ($85.00-$120.00)
