Beach bead. Blue wave. Beach Bead. Ocean scene. Lampwork Glass Bead. Sand and Sea. Water.
I love the simplicity of this bead. It has everything you need to remember the waves on the beach, blue of the water and and some ivory and there you go! this bead starts with a lovely glass called Arvoiro Lapis. Imagine the lovely blues of the water as you sit on the beach listening to the waves. Then I add some sand colored glass, heat the bead and shape it. Once I like the shape, each side gets heated and twisted to make the lovely wave. I hope you will enjoy wearing this bead as much as I enjoyed making it.
The specs: 20mm hole to hole 20mm widest point 11mm thick 1.5mm hole
I handcraft each glass bead in my studio with a torch and immediately put it into a kiln to stabilize the glass. This process of cooling or annealing happens overnight.
