Lampwork glass bead focal made by me in my home studio. This lampwork glass bead heart focal is in a base of pink with encased pink, raised lettering spelling "Love". It has purple and blue raised floral detail. This bead was made with love and has a bohemian feel. 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.
