This collectible artisan bead is has a core of purple pink luster under a heavy encasement of clear. Using glass stringer applied freehand in the flame, I've drawn a fluffy grumpy cat who has just opened his package only to find that it is the dreaded holiday sweater. Of course every owner would put the sweater on the kitty and see this familiar facial expression. In the background I've written "Nope!" The bead is encased in another layer of clear to magnify. This one has a black and white signature murrine.

The endcaps are finished off in red

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 - 75mm x 21mm 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.
