I made this lentil-shaped focal bead with boutique silver glasses, dark amethyst and clear glass. I love the inky color of this bead.

Have you ever done water color or painting with inks? You know how the water looks when you dip the first ink-filled brush in for a rinse? That's what this looks like to me. I love that intense swirl in the water - it last so briefly.

Silver glass is tricky to photograph, at least for me. It's reactive in different light and that adds to the delight of this glass. Different applications of heat during the process of making beads with silver glass create the surprises that many have come to love. I would be included in this group. :)

I have taken great care to represent the image as best I can and as close to reality as possible. Please understand that monitors are different and yield different results. Keep in mind that the images are an enlarged view.

Measurements: This focal bead was wound on a 1/16" mandrel (approximately 1.6 mm) and measures approximately 25mm tall by 12mm thick.

All my beads are made by me, one by one. They're properly annealed and cleaned, ready for your enjoyment.
