This collectible artisan bead is has a core of lusterous light blue under a heavy encasement of clear. Using glass stringer, I've written "Home is where the heart is" in white before encasing in crystal clear for depth. I've drawn a white house with yellow windows, a black door, and a brown roof in the foreground and a small grey tabby cat with a red heart above. The entire bead has been encased in more layers of clear to magnify and give the bead depth.

The endcaps are finished off in black

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 - 77mm x 21mm at the widest

Hole Size - 2.5mm

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.
