Product Details

I made this pair of matching beads with a core from a lovely silver-laden glass called Kalypso, encased in crystal clear glass, and decorated with hair-fine white stringer work. Kalypso is a very pretty pink-based silver glass, and the results can range from pink to blue and purple.

Each bead is divided into 3 or 4 sections, and each section is filled with a different pattern. The title of this series of beads reminds me that I should "keep breathing" while I am making them: drawing with a line of glass that is not much thicker than a hair can be daunting!

You will receive a pair of matching beads in a similar design and colours as shown in the photos.

Handmade in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
