Yes, another addition to the carved category... fun.. smallest is around 3/8"D, largest around 1". 1/16" mandrel holes.
Again... I don't mind making them, and I love photographing them... it's all good!
Veiled purples paired with watery peaches. sizes ranging from 3/8" to 3/4"diameter. All with 1/16" mandrel holes.
I love these. So fresh and luminous.
This carved set has some new layered colors - combining a few colors shown here to help the set blend. It's blues/olive green and a lovely purple that has been used in varying intensities. All beads are carved and made on 1/16" mandrels. Refer to photo showing them in my hand for scale.
This engaging set of carved rounds has several colors that are veiled over clear cores to give illumination from within. 13 beads in all - smallest measuring 3/8"D, largest 7/8"D, all with 1/6" mandrel holes.
Throwback to a fun time with silvered glass and clear gorgeous encasing... plus deep carving to bring the light into the interior of the bead. Nice little pendant (1 5/8"L, x 7/8"w) - complete with a fine silver hitching post and sterling loop for immediate wearing - just thread it onto your favorite silver chain.
Softly blushing colors of pale amethyst, peach, apricot, and sepia form the basis for this soft as a whisper set of carved glass lampwork beads.
All have 1/16" mandrel holes - and unlike previous sets - there are no spacer beads - and actually 4-5 more beads per set.
Rich toned glass with surface carving yield sparkle and an elegance to glass lampwork beads. Colors often dense in nature are veiled over clear cores to give illumination. The smallest rounds are 3/8"D there is a certain warmth that this set holds!
Obvious confessions... I LOVE these beads. They are just gorgeous - with the silvery core they shimmer and if diamonds didn't exist these would be the go-to beads for earrings!! 1/2"diameter carved for extra sparkle and presence. Two sets available, four beads each.
I revisit this style every now and then, and it felt like it was time. Light and reflection filled set of 24 chunky disks with color & charm, and 10 clear spacers. All beads have 1/16" mandrel holes. This set measures 8 7/8"L as strung. It is comprised of denim, olive and a few gray beads - some of which are an overwrap on a colorless core - to allow light from within.
Very pretty and could very easily be strung much as it is for wear.
I've used some dark, dense colors and veiled them over clear cores... all with ridges to amplify sparkle and add visual interest. Set has 1/16" mandrel holes and measures 8 1/2"L
