A set of five glass tube beads. The beads are made from dark silver plum, a purplish black glass which develops a metallic finish in the flame. I have cut diagonal lines into the bead to give and interesting texture and treated them in the flame to give an aged appearance. The effect has been very variable on this glass with some matte areas while others retain the metallic finish with shades of black with hints of plum and some golden tones.
- Approximately 9 x 8mm diameter
- Made on 2mm mandrels
- Kiln annealed from the flame.
The beads will be made to order and there may be slight variations in the design from those pictured. .
