Deep Blue Waves Focal
This large focal bead was a kind of experiment. While playing with a new silver enhanced glass I decided to add a bit of texture to kick up the developing colors and after encasing got this fabulous and funky design.
It measures approximately 36mm from hole to hole, 36mm wide and 18mm thk and was created on a 3/32" diameter mandrel.
Beads this size make fabulous necklaces. I also like to mount these on wine bottle stopper hardware and give them as gifts.
All of my glass beads have been carefully annealed in my digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and durability.
