Handmade Hollow Core Glass Bead Set: 3 Lampwork Beads (Transparent Aqua & Mosaic Green)
The big focal bead is a hollow core bead, meaning that it has no glass at its center. This makes it considerably lighter than normal beads of this size but still incredibly durable and wearable.
The body of the bead is a Transparent Aqua glass though which light passes - Beautiful! The big dots are made with a lovely Mosaic Green glass that sparkles and changes depending on the light.
Focal bead is large flat oval which measures 34mm x 25mm. The companion beads measure 12mm x 8mm. Mandrel/bead hole size is a generous 2mm.
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.
