Koi Pond Drawing Sketch Focal Blue Luster Orange White Fish Pond Lampwork Bead Handmade Glass Heather Behrendt SRA 3889



This bead features a core of lusterous blue for the “pond” with swirls encased in a thick layer of clear. I've drawn three large koi fishies using white stringer with markings of orange, red and black outlined in hairthin black stringer. After adding another layer of clear to put the fishies underwater, I've drawn a few lilypads with pink flowers before adding another layer of clear. I've finished this bead off with black endcaps

Each one of these 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 - 70mm x 20mm at the widest

Hole Size - 2.5mm

Number of beads - 1

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.
