Glass Bead Pendant -
This slightly flattened barrell shaped lampworked bead was made by making a thin, tubular base using a glass with a high silver content. This was then encased with clear glass in a special way resulting in the inner "vortex" shape. As a final step, paper thin shards of another high silver content glass were wrapped on the surface of the bead to partially cover it.
It is designed to be worn as a pendant on the black satin cord that comes with it or it can be strung on a favorite chain. The bead has a hand formed sterling silver wire bale that is approximately 3/16" in diameter ... large enough for most omega and similar chains.
