I love the simplicity of this bead. It has everything you need to remember the waves on the beach, a touch of blue and teal and some ivory and there you go! this bead starts with a lovely glass called Caribbean Sea. I mean the name says it all. Imagine the lovely blues and teals 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.

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.
