Glass Bead Pendant -
This flat diamond shaped lampworked bead was made with a deep purple/red glass. Spirals of glass high in silver content were wrapped around the base bead, manipulated with a pick, and melted in before re-shaping and flattening the bead. Varying the torch settings after the bead was shaped produced the silver/blue sheen in the decorating glass spirals.
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.
