Lampwork glass focal bead made by me in my home studio. This Día de los Muertos Skull Focal Bead was made with pink, orange and purple raised flower designs with blue dot accents. The second picture shows the bead next to an ince tape measure for size reference.
All of my handmade, lampwork glass beads are made on a 3/32" mandrel. The bead hole is cleaned with a dremel diamond bit. The glass beads are kiln annealed for strength and durability. I use Italian, German and Chinese glass.
