A set of 35 lampwork glass beads in black, green and ivory, kiln annealed for lasting strength.

This statement set features a large focal bead with an asymmetric tribal design in a gorgeous olive green over an ivory base, banded at each end with black. The four decorated round beads, which are again bold and large, feature stringer work in the same green, and some further organic-looking embellishment with reactive silvered ivory glass.

Last but certainly not least are the robust black glass spiral disc beads, which are wound deliberately chunkier than my discs to date, so as to complement the bold-statured feature beads. The discs have been strung for display purposes as composite beads, each composite being made up of seven individual chunky spiral discs.

A size-matched pair of black lampwork glass spacer beads completes the set, and the beads have been strung both with etched black glass and pearl-like seed beads for you to use in your jewellery projects.

The discs and the feature beads were made on 2.4mm mandrels.
The pair of size-matched black spacer beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
The focal bead measures 27.5mm from hole to hole, 14.5mm at its girth, and 8.5mm at each end.
The largest round feature bead measures 15mm x 10mm, and the smallest measures 14mm x 9mm.
The chunky spiral disc beads range from 11.5mm x 2mm to 15mm x 3mm.
Measurements are approximate.
Four views of a single set of 35 beads are shown.
