For a small fee, I will mount this bead onto a sterling silver headpin, adding a small Swarovski crystal top and bottom, so that you may wear it immediately.

"One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".

...that is what I was thinking of as I made this bead

This unique focal bead is made using Italian Effetre glass. The 'sky' is shades of dark grey and blue with sparkling stars! These were created by melting in fine silver wire. The .999 silver, fumed a bit here and there, causing an aurora borealis effect. The bottom surface of the 'moon' has textural craters and is heavily coated with silvered ivory. As you look closely, you will see many deep, dark and mysterious caverns.

Included with each of focal beads is a length of vinyl tubing. When placed in the 3/32 hole, it prevents any wobble that may occur when using my masterpiece focals in your designs.
