A set of seven disc lampwork glass beads made from various shades of glass fumed with fine silver, kiln annealed for lasting strength.

This selection comprises discs in golden yellow, sapphire, pale ruby, amethyst and amber. They have an absolutely beautiful pearly iridescence to them. For display purposes I’ve strung the discs together, to give an idea of what they would look like making up a composite bead.

I’m making a lot of these discs at the moment and am enjoying putting them together into composite disc beads as part of a necklace. Stringing them adjacent to each other in a tapering fashion makes for an unusual sparkly, not to mention tinkly, effect.

Have a look at serving suggestions to see an example of what I’ve been doing with them.

The beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
The diameter of the centre disc is 14.5mm.
The diameter of the smallest disc is 12.5mm.
All seven discs strung next to each other, as photographed, make a composite bead measuring 16.5mm from end to end.
Measurements are approximate.
