Moon and the Stars over the beach. This bead starts with the sand and the night sky, then a small lines of silvered ivory and avorio lapis mimic the ocean and some silvered ivory for the reflection of the stars on the water. Then night sky is peppered with stars by melting in fine silver wire. The last step is to add the moon. I hope you will enjoy this little bead. I reminds me of being on the water at night and watching the moon come in. * ready to ship*
There is a crescent one side and a full moon and the Little Dipper on the other.

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.
Not made for children.
