An unusual curved-profile focal tab bead in shades of ivory, black, purple and silver, kiln annealed for lasting strength.

This bead was a real pleasure to make, and represents a departure in my work towards a more organic feel. In this focal, silvered ivory stringer, black glass, silver glass and deep transparent violet all combine in a twisty-tumbly swirl effect. I love how the reactive ivory glass began to crawl and streak across the black glass, providing a beautiful contrast of soft with sleek.

The bead was made on a 2.4mm mandrel.
It measures 21mm from hole to hole and 19.5mm at its widest point.
The bead is 11mm thick.
Measurements are approximate.
