For years I made these scrollwork beads... and early on had a set published in a book... when I look back at that set - and how much thinner/more controlled my designs are now... I'm amazed.  This week I rounded several sets out - so that all you have to do is string them with seed beads and you're all set.  I figured I'd add a clasp component as well - this one has a bar - which I'm assuming you'll make a small seed bead loop and hook it over.  1/2" & 3/8" dia beads with 1/16" mandrel holes, 1 7/17"dia focal.

For years I made these scrollwork beads... and early on had a set published in a book... when I look back at that set - and how much thinner/more controlled my designs are now... I'm amazed.  The focals are tabular shaped and measure 1 7/16" in diameter, the other beads are 1/2" & 3/8" dia.  the design is on the front, and the backs have been ground smooth and sealed.

the front, and the backs have been ground smooth and sealed. The other beads are 1/2" & 3/8" dia. all with 1/16" mandrel holes.  I envision these strung with seed beads - and on one end I've fashioned a button (see it? blue with a coral dot)... and I see this having a loop of small seed beads thrown over it to secure.  I saw some the other day - size 11 that seemed delicate enough.  Will make a stunning piece, pamper yourself or surprise someone over the holidays!

Again, an intricately executed set of scrollwork beads - fine lines of pale ivory left slightly raised on a base bead that is a solid color.  Finished off with a tabular focal that has a place for a jumpring - I envision this being beaded with small seed beads and a loop being fashioned to go over the glass bar *left of the focal.

The focal tab measures 1 7/16" dia, while the balance of the beads are 1/2" & 3/8" dia with 1/16" mandrel holes.

Most unusual of scrollwork designs - in fact the first to have daisies, vines, and leaves.  Finished off with a tabular focal and a closure button at back.  The focal tab measures 1 7/16" dia, while the balance of the beads are 1/2" & 3/8" dia with 1/16" mandrel holes.

Silver Wrapped Parchment Pair - $35

An oldie, but definitely a favorite!  Parchment glass (not yellowy like ivory - but a cooler neutral), wrapped unmercifully with fine silver wire - which has been fused to the surface of the bead in the flame - then tumbled overnight to make sure it stays on,  gets polished, and smooths the silver out. 13mm rounds with 1/16" mandrel holes.  Another candidate for the little black dress of earring beads!!
