Glass Bead Pendant -
This flat teardrop shaped lampworked bead was made with a base of semi-transparent red glass that was decorated with shards of glass that have a high silver content. The bead was shaped and flattened and then the shards were applied with tweezers and melted in. The result is a wonderful patterning of silver outlines with subtle tones of blue.
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.
