A collection of eleven lampwork glass beads in soft transparent greens, kiln annealed for lasting strength.

These eleven spiral disc beads have been carefully wound from pale transparent green glass into which deep emerald green frit has been melted to create gentle gradations of colour saturation (discs + frit = friscs!). Because of the frit, not only is each bead a slightly different shade of green, but there are different shades of green within each bead. They catch the light beautifully.

The beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
The largest bead has a diameter of 17.5mm, and the smallest measures 15mm in diameter.
The width varies from 3mm to 3.5mm.
Measurements are approximate.
Four views of a single collection of beads are shown.
