A long single focal bead made from black glass, enamel and metal leaf, kiln annealed for lasting strength.

To make this bead I used some of the techniques I learned from the inspiring Jennifer Geldard on a recent class I took. The surface has a beautiful mottled, almost eggshell-like, texture in black, white, green and turquoise, with a subtle and elegant sheen. It is highly tactile and lovely to hold.

  • The bead was made on a 2.4mm mandrel.
  • It measures 29mm from hole to hole and 11.5mm at the thickest point in the centre.
  • Measurements are approximate.
  • Three views of a single lampwork bead are shown.
