These beads are made to order. Yours will look very similar in pattern, colour, and size to the beads pictured. Please allow me 2-3 business days to make your beads.
This earthy 15 x 9mm glass spacer bead pair is lovingly handmade by me, Gillian Soskin, in my home glass studio using a turquoise glass base with dots of ivory glass. The reaction between the two glasses results in a thin black line encircling each dot. I used no black glass. I then tumbled the beads to give a satiny smooth finish. The turquoise glass has a patina that develops in the kiln, giving these a rustic appearance.
They are made on 3/32'' mandrels with 2.4mm bead holes.
All my glass 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.
