Set of 5 Handcrafted Lampwork Glass Beads in shades of Blues.
This listing is for a set of 5 handmade lampwork glass beads. They were created by me in my studio located in The Woodlands, Texas using a mixture of Effetre and CIM glass rods.
They are all orphan beads, meaning, none of them are matching pairs- however- they all share the same color palette of mostly blues. These have quite a few other colors in addition to several shades of blues- there is pinks, red, orange, ivory, greens, and more swirled and dotted in there for good measure!
All 5 are of a "donut" or rondelle shape. These are made one by one by melting hot glass onto a metal rod- some imperfections are to be expected. The holes may not be perfectly situated in the middle of the bead, and the shape is not always perfectly round. Sometimes there can be small air bubbles trapped in the layers of glass. Their uniqueness is what makes them special, so please enjoy them in your jewelry creations! You will not be able to find beads like these ever in any craft store!
**Please note! I am a beginner beadmaker and these are some of the first beads I have up for sale. I have made them very cautiously and carefully and ensured that they have all been properly cooled and annealed in a kiln, which should ensure they are strong and resistant to breakage. However, lampwork beads are in general more fragile than store bought beads, so please handle them carefully! They will be shipped with lots of care to avoid any damage. All of my beads have been properly cleaned with a diamond bit Dremel and inspected.**
Please do let me know if you have any questions about size or color prior to ordering as sometimes colors can shift from camera to monitor. I strive to make my customers 100% satisfied so if there is ever anything I can do to help, please let me know!!
You will receive the 5 beads shown, please reference the photos with coin for size as they are all of varying graduated sizes.
All are made on 3/32" mandrels, so they all have the same 3/32" holes.
