Glass Bead Pendant -
This cylindrical lampworked bead combines pure silver foil with black, fossil, and red/orange glass. The components were added one at a time to form a round ball. The next step was to hold the stainless steel rod on which the bead was formed vertically while heating the glass to a sufficiently molten state to allow it to flow along the rod. The patterning developed as the glass flowed. Thanks to Lara Lutrick for sharing the technique.
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.
