A set of five lampwork glass beads in shades of blue, kiln annealed for lasting strength.

The feature bead in this set is built from beautiful sky blue glass and decorated with a rolled sweep of clear reactive frit, or granulated glass. The frit has melted into the surface of the opaque layer below, creating an unusual and beautiful ‘crackle glazed’ effect. In places, tiny tiny seams of air have been trapped to add an extra level of sparkle. The end result is an unusually ‘reverse textured’ effect, which is precisely what I love about adding transparent glass to opaque. A pair of transparent medium aqua and a pair of opaque sky blue lampwork glass beads complete the set.

The beads have been strung with tiny opaque blue glass seed beads for you to use in your jewellery projects.

The beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
The feature bead measures 13mm in diameter, and the width is 10.5mm.
The smallest spacer pair of beads measure 9.5mm x 6.5mm.
Measurements are approximate.
Two views of a single set of five lampwork beads are shown.
