This is a strand of 50 of my handmade lampwork glass beads which are leftovers from the bead sets I've been making for the last two or three months. I make hundreds of beads a week most of the time, so I am always putting extras aside. These beads are otherwise known as "orphans".

(Paypal only please!)

All of these beads my best quality work, so there are no seconds, no rejects (aka "wonkies"). They were put aside for various reasons - too small, too large, too much color, not enough color, too much heat that changes color, experiments, and a few made with glass I can't find again, etc.....

The majority of them are traditional rounds (rondelles) and they measure around 8mm x 12mm. These beads are all made of 1/16" mandrels so they have holes that are approximately 1.5mm.

***Please note: the white spots and tiny white flecks on the beads are from the photo lamp reflection***

I used to sell these on auction as 100 beads with a starting bid of 99 cents, and sit back and watch the bids fly up. It was very exciting! I have had ending bids as high as $368 with $250 being the average back in our better economic times. Currently my per bead prices are $2.00 - $2.75 each for the sets I sell in the shop. But I'm going to let these go at just $1.20 each, which is a sacrifice, but my Etsy bill is due! :)

Thank you for looking! :)
