A set of 9 lampwork glass beads handmade in my Cheshire studio. 5 pressed tab beads in 3 sizes feature shades of rich purples and violets, layered in a blend of clear and opaque glass, and framed with a subtle metallic bronze around the edges. Complemented by 4 small purple spacers. There is some surface texture to the pressed beads as shown in the images.
These beads proved very tricky to photograph! The purple is a rich blackcurrant shade which hasn't come through well on the pictures unfortunately.
2 x 13 mm tabs 2 x 15 mm tabs 1 x 18 mm tab 4 x 6 by 8 to 9 mm spacers
All were made on 1.6 mm mandrels and annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for durability.
Photographs taken under studio light and enlarged to show detail. Every effort has been made to accurately represent the glass colours but shades may vary on different computer monitors. Please note that due to the handmade nature of these beads, sizes may vary slightly. You will receive the beads in the photographs.
