Amber Purple Boro Smoke...Borosilicate Glass Lampwork Bead Pair SRA

Amber Purple Boro Smoke...Borosilicate Glass Lampwork Bead Pair SRA

This gorgeous handmade boro lampwork bead pair is lovingly made by me, Gillian Soskin, in my home glass studio using a clear borosilicate (boro, aka Pyrex) base and the fabulous Amber Purple glass...I applied it lightly here to get the pale wispiness within the glass! The bead on the right has a bit stronger colour to it.

Be sure to click on the images to see them fully.

The large rondelle-shaped spacer beads measure 15 x 9mm, and are made on 3/32" mandrels.

Boro (borosilicate) glass is very different from Italian and German soft glass. The colours are mysterious, shifting with the light, and subtle/natural in tone. They really come alive in sunlight.

My photos are taken indoors in a light box with natural lighting. The pictures have been enlarged so please check the size of the bead. I have not enhanced the colours with photo-editing but keep in mind monitors can show colours differently.

All my beads go directly from the torch to kiln for controlled annealing. All beads are inspected for flaws and thoroughly cleaned for you.

I am a self-representing glass artist (SRA # S107) which means that my beads are individually made, by me, and not mass produced. I am also a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers.
