This large focal bead has been created using a variety of silver enhanced glass and fine silver wire. I love experimenting with these types of glass and am rarely disappointed when I open the kiln the next day.
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.
