My beads are created in the flame, one at a time, then fully kiln-annealed for lasting strength and beauty.
A set of 7 etched handmade beads with big holes - made especially to fit the popular European bracelet systems. These beads do not have a silver core, so they're a great way of filling up your bracelet for less cash!
Three beads are ivory, two are opaque red and two are transparent red ... all have melted silver and droplets of fine silver wire around the middle, then they're all etched for a matt stone-like finish. The etching makes the transparent beads look frosted rather than see-through.
Beads measure approx 14mm wide, holes measure approx 4.4mm.
This is a regular style that I make to order so you won't receive the actual beads pictured, but yours will be made with the same "recipe". I try to keep a small stock of all the colours but there may be a couple of days delay if I have to make your beads to order - please let me know if this is a problem.
I also make these beads in purples, blues, greens and amber.
This red combination came about following a request from a customer - so if you fancy something different, do let me know, I'm always looking for new ideas!
