~~ HUGE Orphan Lot Handmade Lampwork Glass Beads SRA!! ~~

Well, I cleaned out my bead box again, and holy cow did I find a lot of orphan beads. I don't know where they all come from. I guess I just make a lot of beads.

These are all good quality beads - properly annealed, cleaned, and structurally sound. There are some leftovers from sets that weren't quite the right size, or didn't quite match. There are some styles that were not popular and have just been sitting around too long. There are test beads where I decided to not make a whole set for whatever reason. Whatever the reason these guys became orphans, what they have in common is, they are all looking for a home!

Please keep in mind that, while I do my best to photograph my beads accurately, your computer monitor may be different than mine, and colours may not display exactly true for you.

Details:
279 beads (if I counted right!) Here is the breakdown of what you will get:
Lentils: 29
Pandora style beads: 24 (8 with sterling silver lining, 2 with copper, the rest unlined)
Encased rounds: 14
Rounds: 59
Spacers: 85
Bumpy: 11
Crystals: 9
Discs: 15
Buttons: 11
Focals: 7
Heart pendants: 5
Big hole focal beads: 10

Materials:
Italian art glass (Moretti/Effetre), German art glass (Lauscha), American art glass (Creation is Messy, Double Helix), Premium glass frit by Val Cox, sterling silver tubing, copper tubing, silver foil

All of my beads are carefully annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for durability. They are created by myself (Self Representing Artist #H27), in my home studio on beautiful Vancouver Island on the West Coast of British Columbia.
