A single, almost-round bead made in a beautiful translucent teal green-blue glass, decorated with turquoise scrolls. The reaction bewteen the two colours creates a sort of batik effect dark line through the centre of the stringerwork.
The bead is a little larger than my usual ones, with a slightly bigger hole.
Bead size/s: About 15.5mm diameter x 14mm
Hole size: Approximately 2.5mm
Kiln annealed and cleaned
Note: Although I have captured the beads' colours as best as I can, different screen and monitor settings vary and as such the colours of the beads may appear slightly different in real life than they do on your computer or device. In particular, Apple devices tend to ramp up the reds so please bear this in mind when viewing beads that are red, pink, purple etc.
Prefer the satin finish look?
Tumble-etching is available for these beads at no extra cost.
If you like, I can tumble-etch these beads to a soft, satin finish. This process will dull the glass, making any transparent parts appear frosted and translucent.
If you'd like some of the beads etched and some left shiny, that's fine too. Just select the etching option and then in the notes at checkout let me know which ones or how many you'd like etched.

The tumble-etching process is not reversible.
My tumble-etching opinon on these particular beads: They'd look pretty cool.
