Having a lot of fun with new colors here. This bead is made with half pink, that comes out looking like seashell pink; the other half is an experimental glass that strikes when it is heated and cooled several times. Had I taken more time doing that there would have been more colors to come up. The center swirl and the dots are a silvered glass that creates cool lusters and reflections. I've made 5 beads using these same colors, but in different sizes and shapes. This one is especially pretty. This bead has been flattened and measures 21 cm long and 9 cm thick.
I work with soft glass of many different brands and types. As a professional lampworker, my beads are kiln annealed several hours for strength and durability. I personally inspect each bead for flaws and I thoroughly clean the bead holes with my trusty Dremel tool. Should you not be satisfied with your purchase I am more than willing to exchange or refund according to customer wishes.
