Turquoise glass bead necklace, designed and made here in the studio, beginning with the flame-torched glass bead.
I made the bead with a base of ivory glass. Turquoise reacts with dark ivory to create a black outline. I raked the central dots to create an interesting pattern. The small dots are caramel colored. All my beads go directly from torch to kiln to be annealed for durability.
- Bead is 1 1/8 inch by 1/2 inch.
- Cotton cord is 29 inches, but can be adjusted down to any size by pulling the strings through the black bead after you put it on.
- Comes in a recycled-content gift box.
Thanks so much for checking out my glass creations! 🙂
