THE BEADS

Organic etched lampwork bead set with great color reactions in three different sizes for a range of design options.

These beads are made with copper green, deep lavender, vanilla and the very rare Z99 purple rose glass. They were created by building up 8 different layers of glass, frit and powder to create the beautiful color reactions.
Shaped into spree lentils in focal size, medium and small. Etching the beads created an organic, stone like look that - combined with the "rust"-like color reactions - remind me of ancient artifacts.

- 1 Pompeji focal spree lentil, 21 x 9 mm
- 2 medium Pompeji spree lentil, 17 x 8 mm
- 2 small Pompeji spree lentil, 14 x 6.5 mm

Wonder about the last photo? Well ... it's me making a glass bead on my torch! I'm using a centuries-old technique called lampworking in which molten glass is wrapped around a stainless steel rod to create the glass beads.


GENERAL INFO

All of my lampwork beads are handmade by myself in my glass studio at Ames Lake, Washington.
All beads are kiln annealed to ensure durability and strength. The bead holes are properly cleaned and they are ready for you to use in your jewelry designs. I used 1/16" mandrels, giving bead holes of approx. 2 mm size.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed! If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with the beads received, please return them within 7 days for refund of the purchase price.

Please note: The colors may look slightly different due to light conditions during which the pictures were taken and the color adjustments of your computer monitor.
