Glass Bead Pendant -
This round, tapered cylinder pendant bead began with a base of white glass that was partially covered with a rich purple-red, transparent pink, and silver pink. The molten glass was then manipulated with a pick and shaping paddle to produce the beautiful patterning. Further texture was added by making diagonal cuts near the bottom of the glass.
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.
