Bead, Focal, Matte Garden Bead LBF20-4340

$18.00

This bead measures approximately 34 mm x 16 mm and was wound on a 1\16 mandrel. 

FLORALS & GARDEN BEADS

My florals may be 3 or 4 petal flowers, or simple vines with flowers. Usually they are raised from the bead surface, but sometimes everything is melted in to create an even smooth surface. Petals can be simple one color, or many layers. Vines typically are twisted & pulled combinations of color (twisties) to give a bit of texture to the motif. Garden beads are a bit different. The flowers I do on the garden beads are made up of canes (designs made with layers of glass and then pulled thin). All twisties and canes must be made up ahead of time so as to be ready to be applied to the bead.

I use 104 COE glass – Effetre (formerly Moretti), Lausha, Messy, and assorted silver reactives like TAG and Double Helix. I work on a Minor torch and use either my Arrow Springs A-18 kiln or my Toolbox kiln. All my beads are properly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln, and then cleaned thoroughly from bead release using specially designed reamers in my Foredom.
