Cheetah Wild Cat Kitty Drawing Sketch Focal Savannah Stringer Blue Pink Topaz Lampwork Bead Handmade Glass Heather Behrendt SRA 3803



This one features a sunset of pinks and blues in a lusterous glass with layers of clear before I add clouds. The scenery is a savanah with a lone tree drawn in stringer. I've drawn a cheetah using ivory, silver for the spots and outlined in hairthin black stringer before being encased in more clear.

The endcaps are finished off in transparent topaz

Each one of these cat sketch beads is one of a kind. The designs are not painted on. They are drawn with hair thin pieces of glass called stringer. Each one starts as a design in my sketchbook and is translated into glass.

Measurements - 72mm x 20.5mm at the widest

All my beads are annealed in a computer controlled kiln for strength and durability, and cleaned with a diamond tipped dremel. These are handmade so there might be a slight variance in size.

My pictures are taken in a lightbox with an SLR camera to get the best representation of my work. There are still variances in monitors and so forth. If you have any questions or need more pictures, please let me know.
