MADE TO ORDER.

So I have a sandblasted golden snowflakes bead for you! This heart focal bead was made with crystal clear glass that was then fumed with 22k gold. Beautiful golden snowflakes on one side – and a plain golden heart on the other – this makes the bead almost glow from the front! The heart measures approximately 37mm x 38mm x 11mm.


(NB: The gold is a thin layer on the top of the bead, it is hardwearing, but take care not to scratch it or use any etching chemicals near it as it will remove the gold. It is a highly reflective surface that picks up fingerprints very easily, and the lights really highlight the gold colour).


Gold fuming is done by placing a tiny piece of 22k gold in the flame of the torch and the bead to be fumed held higher up in the flame. The gold vapourises and travels along the flame, coating the bead in a thin layer of gold. After fuming, I masked the pattern on the bead and sandblasted the surface, leaving the gold pattern slightly raised and a matt etched-like look to the rest of the bead.


My beads are made on 5/64" mandrels (2mm hole). (My beads are properly annealed in my digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and durability (flame to kiln) and the holes are cleaned to remove excess bead release. Photos are taken using a light tent and daylight bulbs, and please bear in mind that monitors can show slight differences in colour).



The bead in the photo is now sold, so this is a Made to Order listing - please allow me 7 working days to remake it for your you. You will receive a bead very similar to the picture. Please keep an eye on your messages, as I will send you pics of your finished bead prior to mailing to make sure you are happy with it :)



(Please see my other Etsy shop for my feedback and previously sold items:
www.finishingtouchjewels.etsy.com)



All my beads are handmade by me using Effetre, Vetrofond, Double Helix, Lauscha, Reichenbach, and CIM glass in my small studio in Adelaide. They are properly annealed in my digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and durabilty and the holes are cleaned to remove excess bead release. (Please bear in mind that monitors can show slight differences in colour).

SAFETY NOTE: All beads are choking hazards and should be kept away from babies and small children. My beads are made with glass and should be given the same care as you would give any glass object.

This item ships from Australia, and can take 7-14 days to reach Europe and the USA.

I really cant thank Stephanie enough for the beautiful beads she made for my family, the time and effort that she put in to perfecting them for us is so appreciated and noticeable.  She went above and beyond to give us something that we will treasure forever in memory of our dad/pop. I wish you could of seen the smiles that the kids had when receiving them. Thank you
