The base color is red mix of glass with streaks of ivory, plus a touch of this and that. In a molten state the colors are all blended together with Silver Leaf, creating this organic design. The Silver reacts in interesting ways with the different types of glass. Design is throughout.
The focal bead is a flat oval which measures 34mm x 25mm. The smaller companion beads measure 11mm. Mandrel/bead hole size is 1.5mm.
These beads were handmade by our own Tim James in our Tuscany, Italy studio. Glass used: Italian glass from the Venetian island of Murano.
Since these beads are handmade, please be aware that there may be slight variances in size and shape. Beads are annealed in a digital kiln for strength and durability and are cleaned and inspected for excellence.
