‘Golden chest of Parda strongly glows’
This bead is part of my catra collection, inspired by Nick Green’s Cat Kin series of children’s books. Nick asked me to design beads to represent each of the six catras featured in the books, and I’m really pleased with how the collection has turned out.
This black and golden-coloured bead is the fourth in the catra bead collection. Each bead is available individually, but if you would like the full set of six, please pop back to the main catra beads page to view Akhotep’s catra set.
Catra beads are made on 2.4mm mandrels.
Each bead is made individually, and the bead size is between 8mm x 12mm and 9mm x 13mm.
Measurements are approximate.
Three views of a single Parda catra bead are shown.
My collection of catra beads was conceived along the lines of enabling you to build your own collection, and as such are available individually, or as a full set of six. Each bead has been wound by hand from molten Venetian glass in my workshop in East Sussex, United Kingdom.
They are supplied as loose beads, rather than finished jewellery. They’ll slip easily onto a piece of cord or narrow ribbon, and would also fit on a 1.6mm sterling silver snake chain. Conceived to be worn either one at a time or in combination, use your imagination and engage your pashki powers!
