Glass Magic

A little (2.54cm, 1inch) hand made glass bead representing a sea shell. 
I am going to make it into a necklace one day.

Click the pic to enlarge, it has some very interesting reflections in it, including the light I illuminated it with, and me!

Just beautiful, Sally! I am a glass bead artist and have been to your area for classes and to buy my glass many times. Did you make this boro bead? It will make a lovely necklace.

Bisous,

The bead is marvelously organic. I can almost feel it pulsating. Lovely.

I see you!!!! At the very left?

This is an excellent photo Flame. The shadow/reflection of the bead on the mat is exceptional. Well done.

It is gorgeous indeed! It also looks like a clenched fist (hehehe-looks like more than 5 fingers)

Woody said...

That's got an amazing range of colors and I'd have never guessed it to be that size. Beautiful!

Carletta said...

I'm a beader myself and I LOVE the colors in this!
It will make a lovely necklace. Like Sylvia said, please let us see it when you do.

What a beautiful bead. I am mesmerized by beads, but never know what to do with them. Except to appreciate their gorgeousness!

Dimple said...

That is a gorgeous bead, please make it into a necklace soon!

Very talented! I also think the lego photo below would be adorable in a child's bedroom!

Happy weekend reflections.

The shell is exquisite! It will make a beautiful necklace one day, but for now it makes a lovely little piece of art all by itself.

JM said...

Very cool piece and great shot!

hesseherre said...

I think this piece seems a MURANO very common in Italy...
If you do that collar think about using a tire of crude leather, it makes all the difference...

Annelie said...

Wow! Love the reflections!

Crafty Green Poet said...

beautiful bead, it will look gorgeous on a necklace

Serline said...

So gorgeous... we used to see lots of seashell jewelry, when we lived in Phuket. Can't wait till you finish the necklace ;-)

BTW regarding "Under the Blood Red Sky", I couldn't stop my hubby from humming the U2 song all weekend!

Kala said...

GrandmaK said...

It's obviously smaller than it looks - it reminds me of a clenched fist. It's very pretty!

Al said...

That's awesome! I wish I had artistic talent to think of and make things like that.
