Cherry Red & Spruce Green Boro Glass Beads-Handmade Borosilicate Lampwork Bead Pair SRA

Glass Beads: Quantity 2
Color: Cherry Red, Spruce Green, White
Size: 15 x 8mm
Shape: Donut, Rondelle
Composition: Borosilicate Glass

This gorgeous lampwork glass bead pair is lovingly handmade by me, Gillian Soskin, in my home glass studio using a blend of Cherry Red, Spruce Green, and Dense White glass, encased in clear to magnify the effect.

Be sure to click on the images to see them fully.

These large donut-shaped beads measure 15 x 8mm, and are made on 3/32" mandrels. The bead holes are 2.4mm in diameter.

Boro (borosilicate) glass is very different from Italian and German soft glass. The colours are mysterious, shifting with the light, and subtle/natural in tone. They really come alive in sunlight.

My photos are taken indoors in a light box with natural lighting and a macro lens. The pictures have been enlarged so please check the size of the bead. I have not enhanced the colours with photo-editing but keep in mind monitors can show colours differently.

All my beads go directly from the torch to kiln for controlled annealing. All beads are inspected for flaws and thoroughly cleaned for you.

I am a self-representing glass artist (SRA # S107) which means that my beads are individually made, by me, and not mass produced. I am also a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers.
