This listing if for one sculptural glass bead from my original Splash series as shown in the pictures. This large focal bead can be used as the centerpiece for a stunning piece of jewelry but it can also be just put on display as a tabletop decoration.
This sculptural glass piece combines two different techniques, on-mandrel lampwork winding and separately blown bubbles. This series was originally created for an exhibition of contemporary glass beads entitled "Air and water". I chose to depict the interface between the two, the bubble, in the process of bursting. Glass is the ideal material to freeze an instant of time !

These beads can be used in jewelry or as tabletop ornaments.

I work exclusively with soda-lime type glass, mostly from the venetian brand Effetre. Some of the surface effects on this bead were made using cubic zirconium inclusions.

Please note that this is a sizable piece (for a bead), which explains the high shipping costs as it needs a well padded box.

MEASUREMENTS : 40 x 40 x 32 mm. Hole size: 3 mm.

SHIPPING : This piece is ready to ship.
