Purple, purple, purple...it's wonderful! I have made a deep purple base bead and wound it with a blue-magenta dichroic strip, then re-heated and shaped all into a four-sided nugget. A characteristic of dichroic glass is the color shift between transmitted light and reflected light. You can see this best along the edge of the beads where the clear glass is showing a different color than the center of the bead. It's what makes dichroic so wonderful. The dichroic strip was wound with the coated side away from the flame, so the center of the bead looks like glitter, while the edge of the strip, where the coating was exposed to the flame, looks polished and metallic.

The bead hole is slightly larger than 1/16" and the beads themselves are approximately 1/2"x1/2" although the size can vary as they are made individually. Be sure to tell me if these are for earrings and I will make sure they are well-matched for size and shape. These would also be great singly or in multiples for a dainty necklace.

The beads are $5.00 each. If you order 10 or more, the price drops to $4.00. For quantities of 30 or more, ask me for a quote. Also let me know if you would like this glass in a different size and/or shape.
