Lampwork glass bead focal made by me in my home studio. This lampwork glass bead heart focal is in a base of black with pale pink stripes. It is decorated on both sides with raised floral accents in pink, purple, blue and orange. This bead was made with love and has a bohemian feel. The third 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.
