A set of seven lampwork glass beads in mottled shades of turquoise on a sleek black base, kiln annealed for lasting strength. I enjoyed creating these beads, which were shaped at the torch using hand tools. Each of the five nugget beads has a different natural smooth stone-like shape with a dainty veil of fine glass in shades of turquoise. Very unusual.

A pair of plain black lampwork glass spacer beads completes the set, and the beads have been strung with little sterling silver saucer beads for you to use in your jewellery projects.

* The beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
* The centre bead measures 11mm at its widest point and 10.5mm from hole to hole.
* The smallest bead measures 10mm at its widest point and 10mm from hole to hole.
* Measurements are approximate.
* Four views of a single set of seven lampwork beads are shown.
