Here is a OOAK (Original One of A Kind) Blue-Ringed Octopus large-hole bead (for dreadlocks or display). I named "turquoise-ringed" just to differentiate it from the other versions currently available in my shop :)

Just this past week I started sculpting these Octopus dread beads, and as far as I know, no one else has made anything remotely like them!! So this is definitely going to be a conversation starter!! And, by buying from me, you're supporting a starving american artist just trying to get her work "out there" and appreciated by others... so it's really a good Karma thing too :p

*I've been a little obsessive about my "blue ringed octopus" beads latelt, trying to get the color combinations "just right"... so I have several "variations" currently available in my shop. Each one is VERY labor-intensive and takes me just over 2 hours to complete... so naturally the cost is a bit more because I have a lot of time invested in it.

COLORS: ivory, cobalt blue, honey amber and sandy-beachy tones with a couple starfish
PENDANT SIZE: 1 5/8" high x 1 1/4" long x 1 1/4" wide (approximately)
MANDREL SIZE: 1/2" (smaller & larger hole sizes available upon request)

**ETCHING*** This particular bead has already been etched to a satin finish :)

All of my lampworking is done in northern California in my home studio. ALL of my beads have been thouroughly cleaned and have been run through an annealing cycle in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure maximum durability and strength. I am also a Self Representing Glass Artist (SRA) member M-181, a professional member of the ISGB, ACGA and Northern California Bead Society.

Thanks for stopping by my shop and looking at my work!! Please convo me any questions or custom requests :p
