This handmade lampwork heart focal features reactive silvered glass in shimmering blues and greens and delicate mother of pearl effects along with silvered ivory glass. The design has been encased in a crystal clear glass.
A spiral texture has been stamped onto each side of the heart and this has been enhanced with a little 24k gold leaf.
All photos have been taken in natural daylight some indoors and some outside in brighter conditions. As you can see from the pictures brighter sunlight intensifies the colours.
The bead is approximately 33mm long by 27mm.
Made on 2mm mandrel
All my beads are kiln annealed.
