This collectible artisan bead is has a core of purple luster under a heavy encasement of clear. Using glass stringer applied freehand in the flame, I've drawn a pirate tabby cat complete with eyepatch, skull and crossbones hat holding up his sword. He floats above a layer where I've drawn a brown pirate chest with sparkling gold doubloons using actual sparkling goldstone and his amber bottle of rum. The innermost layer says "Yar!"

The endcaps are finished off in black and has a small murrine with my signature, "HB."

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 - 74mm x 22.5mm 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.
