This set of 9 beads are so pretty! I can just see them used in a bracelet and earrings or a necklace. My beads are like AKC puppies, you create them, and they turn out so cute, but you eventually have to sell them.
Each bead was was shaped in a square press of graduating sizes, the center bead being the largest (5/8" x 5/8" / 17 mm x 17 mm square, 3/8"/ 7 mm wide). The smallest beads measure 1/2" x 1/2" / 12 mm x 12 mm square and 1/4"/ 7 mm thick.
The process is kinda complicated and would be lengthy so I'll just tell you that it is half Double Helix Clio, half Plum, divided with a silvered ivory stringer with Double Helix Triton raised dots. The spacers are encased Double Helix Clio.
♥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.
♥Bead sets are only temporarily strung to inspire your creative juices! Bead Hoppers and spacers used are included in the sale.
♥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.
