Set of 7 Handcrafted Lampwork Glass Beads - Orphan beads in black, grey, & Dark colors
This listing is for a set of 7 handmade lampwork glass beads. They were created by me in my studio located in The Woodlands, Texas. They are all orphan beads, meaning, none of them are matching pairs.
This set is priced very affordably because these were mostly test beads to try out some different colors it includes (in order as shown on first photograph):
The smallest bead is a sparkly navy round with a silver swirl around the middle.
1 large donut shaped bead in black.
Royal Blue bead with millefiori cane melted into surface
Light pink bead with millefiori cane melted into surface
Black donut shaped bead with turquoise and violet dots. Hole is a bit pointed on one side
Large swirling tubular shaped bead in tones of grey, light blue, ivory, tan, and teal
Small light pink donut shaped bead with swirls of white and small teal green dots around middle.
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 7 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.
Thanks so much for visiting my shop, have a great day!
