An artifact style handmade glass lampwork bead. This goddess bead has been made from opaque dark ivory glass. A spiral texture has been added to one hip silver foil has been melted onto this area to emphasis the spiral design. The bead has been treated in the flame for an aged, pitted appearance with some areas retaining their shine as if the beads has been worn and aged over time.
NB There is tiny dark speck at the top of one breast where I obviously touched with a tool. It can be seen in one of the pictures. This is not very noticeable unless you are looking down at the top of the bead but I have made a small reduction in the price accordingly as well as drawing attention to it here.
The bead is approximately 43mm long
Made on 2mm mandrel
All my beads are kiln annealed.
