A large focal bead inspired by the shifts in colour in the sea. It has a core of rocky grey glass and is layered round with various shades of transparent blue glass with some raised dots and a little sea anemone detail. It measures approximately 32 mm by 22 mm by 15 mm thick.

I make all of my beads by hand (and torch) in my Wiltshire studio so each bead is unique. The beads in the pictures are the ones you will receive. They have been tumbled for over 12 hours to give them their stone like texture. In some you will be able to see crazing and bubbles in the white stringer lines. This is the result of my secret special ingredient and is not a fault in the glass but a way to emulate quartz with glass. It will not crack and fall off (it has, after all, spent 12 hours in a tumbler!) unless you are very rough with your beads.

They have been fully annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability and hand cleaned to remove traces of bead release.
