Set of 7 purple and pink lampwork glass bubble beads. These round donut shaped handmade lampwork beads are made with Italian and German soft glass that has been specifically made for ornamental beadmaking.

Each bead was made by melting a small amount of deep purpley blue glass onto a mandrel and forming it into a cylinder. The cylinder was then, whilst still quite hot, rolled in baking powder. The bead was then encased with pink glass, the overlaid pink has turned the blue base into a gorgeous shade of purple.. The heat from the extra layer of glass has caused bubbles of carbon dioxide to spring out of the baking powder which then get trapped within the glass forever! Their fizz is guaranteed never to go flat!

The beads have been thoroughly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability and then meticulously cleaned of bead release. Wound on 3/8” or 1.6mm mandrels, the hole in each bead is approximately 1.8mm.

They will arrive with you interspersed with some glass spacer seed beads and well padded for their journey to you.

Each bead measures approximately 10mm x 13mm, bear in mind though that they are made by hand and eye only and so, whilst they are pretty uniform in size, there may be very slight variation in dimensions.

All SoozBeads lampwork bead listings are in stock and ready for dispatch.
