This large lentil-shaped lampwork focal bead features an unusual blue-green transparent glass as the base, which has tiny seed bubbles and mica flakes in it that make it appear as if it's really underwater! I applied my handmade silvered ivory shards and barnacle murrini, then added dramatic "waves" and a coral starfish on the front as the finishing touches. The starfish is decorated with raised dots that have a deep iridescent finish.

The silver glass used for the dots very lightly fumed the rest of the bead, so it has a slight golden tinge in some areas that still goes perfectly with the beachy vibe! This bead has a wonderful 3D effect, but all the raised details are only on the front side—everything on the back has been pressed down so that it lays very comfortably against the skin.

* Round Focal: approx. 25mm in diameter and 13mm thick (at thickest point of raised areas)
* Wound on a 3/32" mandrel

** I have done my best to represent this bead's appearance as accurately as possible, but please be aware that colors may appear differently under various monitors and lighting conditions. **

These lampwork beads were handmade by me, Lori Bergmann, in my studio in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. They are immediately annealed in a digitally-controlled kiln for durability and strength, and thoroughly cleaned.
