A random collection of five lampwork glass beads in medium opaque grey and reactive ivory, kiln annealed for lasting strength and tumbled for a soft matte finish.

These beads are part of my stonesoft collection, and the group comprises three small round beads and two smooth random-shaped pebble beads, each with a sweep of reactive ivory glass. This specially created design effect uses pure silver to make the ivory glass bloom and crawl across the bead, and because of this the sweeps of ivory flicker with tiny little flecks of metal.

I had fun rummaging to put this collection together, and started building the beads into little stacks. My name for a group of unstrung heroes of stonesoft beads is therefore a henge!

The pebble beads were made on 2.4mm mandrels and the rounds were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
The larger pebble bead is 11.5mm x 10.5mm, and the smaller pebble bead is 10.5mm x 10.5mm.
The largest round bead is 10.5mm x 7.5mm, and the smallest round bead is 10mm x 6.5mm.
Measurements are approximate.
Three views of a single henge of five unstrung heroes are shown.
