Birds On The Fence a Sunset Glass Bead. silhouette of three birds on a fence with the sunset in the background. Lampwork bead.
503 birds on the fence Two of my favorite things, sunsets and birds. My back yard faces west and we get some beautiful sunsets. I love looking out and seeing all the little birds sitting on the fence posts chattering away. This bead starts with a base of white, encased in tiny strings of yellow, blue and Rhea pink, then it is encased in clear. I then draw on the fence and birds in black. Decorated on both sides, with black end caps, top and bottom.

I handcraft each glass bead in my studio with a torch and immediately put it into a digitally controlled kiln to stabilize or anneal the glass. Annealing usually happens overnight.
