Perhaps you saw my tutorial article in issue 48 of ‘Bead’ magazine (August/September 2013) giving the recipe for ‘jewels of the sea’? These warm coral rounds were made, like the magazine beads, using a variety of transparent glass rods and enamel.

I’m very pleased with the colours in this set. ¬†With more opaque enamel in the mix, the centre bead is more ‘solid’ in appearance and less translucent than its two immediate neighbours, which have a more ‘hazed’ effect. Ranging from a warm pink to a cooler coral, these colours are very natural-looking and absolutely unique, with the glass for each bead being mixed individually using different amounts of the same ingredients.

A size-matched pair of my handmade transparent amethyst lampwork glass beads completes the set.

The beads were made on 1.6mm mandrels.
The centre bead is 13mm x 9.5mm.
Its two neighbours are 12mm x 8.5mm.
The spacer beads are 9.5mm x 6.5mm.
Measurements are approximate.
