Lampwork glass bead focal made by me in my home studio. This lampwork glass heart bead is made with a base of black with white dots. It is decorated with raised pink floral design and goldstone swirls. The second picture is shown next to an inch 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.
