Glass Bead Pendant -
Originally a bicone, this lamp worked pendant bead is somewhat square as deep cuts were made into the molten glass on four sides of the bicone. The base bead is white glass that was then partially covered with a soft purple glass combined with transparent amethyst. Cutting, dragging, twisting, and shaping the molten glass with a pick and paddle produced the beautiful patterning.
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.
